Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, resulting in high blood sugar levels.
- Increased Thirst and Urination: The body tries to eliminate excess sugar through urine, requiring more fluids.
- Extreme Fatigue: Lack of energy due to the body's inability to use sugar for fuel efficiently.
- Unintended Weight Loss: Despite eating more, the body starts breaking down muscle and fat for energy.
Type 2 Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar (glucose). With Type 2 Diabetes, the body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels.
- Increased Thirst and Frequent Urination: Excess sugar building up in your bloodstream causes fluid to be pulled from the tissues.
- Increased Hunger: Insufficient insulin hampers the body's ability to use glucose for energy, leading to increased hunger.
- Fatigue: When cells are deprived of sugar, you may become tired and irritable.
Prediabetes and insulin resistance refer to higher-than-normal blood sugar levels but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. Insulin resistance is a contributing factor to prediabetes.
- Increased Thirst and Urination: The body tries to get rid of excess sugar through urine, leading to dehydration and increased thirst.
- Fatigue: Energy levels can drop due to the body's inability to use glucose effectively.
- Many people with prediabetes and insulin resistance do not display noticeable symptoms until it progresses to Type 2 Diabetes. Regular blood sugar testing is crucial for early detection and management.
