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
  • nerve damage

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

  • Insulin
  • Oral Medications
  • Diet change
  • Exercise
  • Meditation
