What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a disorder characterized by hyperglycemia or
elevated blood glucose (blood sugar). Our bodies function
best at a certain level of sugar in the bloodstream. If the
amount of sugar in our blood runs too high or too low, then
we typically feel bad.  Diabetes is the name of the
condition where the blood sugar level consistently runs too
high.  It is the most common endocrine disorder.  African
Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans have a higher
rate of developing diabetes during their lifetime.  Diabetes
has potential long term complications that can affect the
kidneys, eyes, heart, blood vessels and nerves.

Diabetes is divided into two major subgroups:
Type 1 diabetes - much less common than Type 2
Diabetes and typically affects younger individuals.  Type 1
usually begins before age 40 although there are
exceptions.  It is associated with a deficiency (or lack) of
insulin.  Without sufficient insulin, the blood glucose rises
to levels which can cause some of the common symptoms
of hyperglycemia.

Type 1 Diabetes Symptoms
The symptoms of Type I diabetes often come on suddenly
and very severely. They include:
  • being exceptionally thirsty
  • dry mouth
  • the need to urinate often
  • weight loss (even though you may be hungry and
    eating well)
  • feeling weak and tired
  • blurry vision

Type 2 diabetes - This type of diabetes is also called adult
onset or non-insulin dependent diabetes.  The symtoms
are often subtle and may be attributed to aging or obesity.  
Nearly 6 million people in the US have it and are not aware
of it.  In Type II Diabetes, the body produces insulin, but it
is either not enough or the body's cells have become
insulin resistant. In other words, the body does not use the
insulin that is being produced.  People with type 2 diabetes
can develop hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic
syndrome.  It can be precipitated by steroids and stress.   
Type 2 should not be treated lightly...  If not properly
treated, type 2 diabetes can lead to complications like
blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and nerve

Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms
Sometimes, people with Type II diabetes don't notice any
symptoms or the symptoms are experienced gradually.
They include:
  • blurry vision
  • cuts or sores that are slow to heal
  • itchy skin, yeast infections
  • increased thirst
  • dry mouth
  • need to urinate often
  • leg pain
