Quick Facts About Diabetes

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a disorder where the body has trouble regulating its blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels. Diabetes is a chronic debilitating disease affecting every organ system.

Our bodies break down the food we eat into glucose, a simple sugar. After being digested, the glucose enters the blood stream. It is the main source of fuel for the body.

Insulin is required to move the glucose from the blood stream to other cells in the body. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas every time you eat. A person with diabetes has little or no insulin. Therefore the glucose is not being used for energy. The body has no fuel, even though there is plenty of glucose in the blood stream.  Over time, high levels of glucose can cause damage to the heart, blood vessels, eyes, feet, nerves and kidneys.

What are Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 1 diabetes usually surfaces in childhood or adolescence, which is why it is sometimes called "juvenile diabetes". It is an auto-immune disease caused when the body's immune system begins attacking insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

Type 2 diabetes is most common in adults over 55, and it is sometimes referred to as "adult onset diabetes". It is a metabolic disorder, where the body produces insulin but cannot use it effectively. People with type 2 diabetes do not always need insulin to control the disease; often it can be controlled with diet and exercise.

Can type 1 diabetes be cured?

Type 1 diabetes is a life-long illness. Children who get type 1 diabetes will not outgrow it. Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes will always have the disease.

Is insulin a cure for diabetes?

While insulin allows a person to stay alive, it does not cure diabetes. To stay alive, people with type 1 diabetes must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood six times a day and take multiple insulin injections daily or continually infuse insulin through a pump.

While trying to balance insulin doses with their food intake and daily activities, people with this form of diabetes always must be prepared for serious hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) or hyperglycemic (high blood sugar) reactions, both of which can be life-threatening.

What are the long term effects of diabetes?

It attacks many organ systems. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, adult blindness and non-traumatic amputations and a leading cause of nerve damage, stroke and heart attacks.

People with diabetes are two to four times more likely to have a heart attack or a stroke than those without diabetes.

Diabetes kills one American every three minutes and is the sixth leading cause of death reported in the United States.

Life expectancy for people with diabetes is shortened by an average of 15 years. The risk of death for people with diabetes is about two times that of people who do not have the disease.
