Diabetes Type 1

Diabetes Type 1

Diabetes means your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. With type 1 diabetes, your pancreas does not make insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth. Type 1 diabetes happens most often in children and young adults but can appear at any age. Symptoms may include Being very thirsty Urinating often Feeling very hungry or tired Losing weight without trying Having sores that heal slowly Having dry, itchy skin Losing the feeling in your feet or having tingling in your feet Having blurry eyesight A blood test can show if you have diabetes. If you do, you will need to take insulin for the rest of your life. A blood test called the A1C can check to see how well you are managing your diabetes.

Nominate your favorite video by emailing us at [email protected]! Diabetes is a chronic disease caused by improper insulin function. This leads to overly high blood sugar. The three types of diabetes include type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes. Prediabetes, where blood sugar is high but not over the diabetic threshold, increases your risk for type 2 diabetes. People of all ages, ethnicities and sizes can get diabetes. Nearly 50 percent of U.S. adults have diabetes or prediabetes, according to a 2015 study. This includes people living with diabetes who haven’t yet received an official diagnosis. Receiving a diabetes diagnosis can feel shocking or overwhelming. The illness has some serious potential complications, such as blindness and amputation. And it’s the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. Treatment often requires immediate and significant lifestyle adjustments. However, with careful management, you can still enjoy a varied diet and active lifestyle. There are plenty of people out there who refuse to let diabetes stop them from thriving.

Emory Helps Latinos Fight Against Diabetes

Emory Helps Latinos Fight Against Diabetes

To learn more about the diabetes education program, call 404-616-5181. As the Hispanic population continues to grow in the United States, so too does the incidence of health concerns characteristic of this demographic. Diabetes is one of the most common conditions to afflict Hispanic adults, with 12.8 percent of the population affected by this disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This comes in slightly below the number of African-Americans with diabetes, 13.2 percent, but above the Caucasian population, at 7.6 percent. Among the reasons for this, according to endocrinologist Guillermo Umpierrez, is that Latinos dont have good metabolic control, which increases the risk of them having complications. Umpierrez attributes this to a general lack of education in the Hispanic community regarding the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. He also believes there is a problem with access to health care. Not everyone goes to the right place or receives the right treatment, because many dont have health insurance and on top of all this immigrants who come to this country quickly get used a fast-food diet and gain a considerable amount of weight in a period of between 5 to 10 years, said Umpierrez, who is a professor of medicine in the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Lipids at Emory University School of Medicine. He also is chief of diabetes and endocrinology at Grady Memorial Hospital. There is a lot we have to do in the Latino community with regards to diabetes care. We must work to reduce the significant increase in complications with vision, leg amputations and renal failure, which leads to dialysis, he added. To further that effort, eight years ago the Emory-Grady diabetes team, led by Umpierrez, created the Emory Latino Diabete Continue reading >>

Video: How Diabetes Affects Your Blood Sugar

Video: How Diabetes Affects Your Blood Sugar

Your body uses glucose for energy. Glucose metabolism requires insulin, a hormone produced by your pancreas. Here's how normal glucose metabolism works, and what happens when you have diabetes — a disease where your body either can't produce enough insulin or it can't use insulin properly. The food you eat consists of three basic nutrients: carbohydrates, protein and fat. During digestion, chemicals in your stomach break down carbohydrates into glucose, which is absorbed into your bloodstream. Your pancreas responds to the glucose by releasing insulin. Insulin is responsible for allowing glucose into your body's cells. When the glucose enters your cells, the amount of glucose in your bloodstream falls. If you have type 1 diabetes, your pancreas doesn't secrete insulin — which causes a buildup of glucose in your bloodstream. Without insulin, the glucose can't get into your cells. If you have type 2 diabetes, your pancreas secretes less insulin than your body requires because your body is resistant to its effect. With both types of diabetes, glucose cannot be used for energy, and it builds up in your bloodstream — causing potentially serious health complications. Continue reading >>
