The Signs/Symptoms.

In this post I will be talking about the symptoms of Type 1 diabetes*.One of the most common symptoms is thirst. Excessive thirst. Sometimes, you feel like you can’t go a second without drinking. Another common one is having to use the bathroom a lot. A common one when having low blood sugar is blurred vision.  The last common one is weight loss. *Just because you possess these symptoms doesn’t mean you have type 1 diabetes.

The Difference.

In this post I will be talking about the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Before we begin, here’s a little information on both of the diseases.Type 1 diabetes is when your beta cells in your pancreas doesn’t produce insulin, a hormone you need to make sugar/glucose into energy. Type 2 diabetes is when your body denies insulin.   First things first; the people it effects. Type 1 affects all ages, when Type 2 is usually in the older crowd, 45+. Secondly, Type 1 diabetes never goes away. It stays with you your whole life. There is no cure, no way to “grow out of it”. Where as in Type 2 diabetes, you can usually “cure” ( reverse)  it by exercising more, having a better diet and watching what you eat. Thirdly, there is nothing you can do to get Type 1 diabetes. It is usually hereditary and/or just comes out of nowhere. Type 2 diabetes is rarely hereditary but can be. Usually, you do something to get it, or put it on yourself. Thank you for reading this.
