Diabetes is, in short, an endocrine disorder that comes along when the pancreas can no longer produce enough insulin, or the cells themselves become resistant to insulin. This means that the body is not able to keep up blood sugar levels during fasting periods.

There are two main types of diabetes:

  • Type 1, or insulin-dependent diabetes, is typically found in children or adolescents.
  • Type 2, or non-insulin dependent diabetes, is also known as adult-onset diabetes and is often found in adults age 40 and older. There are cases, however, where children who are obese and sedentary can get diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This type is considered to be the majority of diabetes diagnoses.

If left untreated, there are serious complications that can come from diabetes, including heart disease, high blood pressure, nerve damage, depression, arthritis, kidney disease, and eye disease. If you have a family history of diabetes, specific nutritional deficiencies, high cholesterol, or other dietary and environmental factors in your life, you may be at risk for diabetes. The first signs of diabetes include fatigue, poor wound healing, gum disease, blurred vision, and frequent infections.
