What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a disorder that will affect your body’s ability to turn food into energy. Normally what takes place, is that the food that you eat is digested and broken down into a simple sugar, know as glucose. Once produced the glucose then circulates in your blood stream where and will become a source of fuel as it enters the cells. The hormone that is produced by the pancreas to help move the glucose into the cells for fuel is call insulin. What normally takes place in a healthy pancreas is that it will adjust the amount of insulin based on the specific level of glucose in the system. A person with diabetes their body is unable to break down the sugar properly, and the blood sugar levels become too high.
Types of Diabetes
There are essentially two types of diabetes.
- Type 1 – People with this type of diabetes are usually unable to produce insulin. This type of diabetes most often occurs before the age of 30 but can strike at any time. The treatment of this type diabetes will results in the need to inject insulin into the system on a regular basis.
- Type 2 – These people can produce insulin, but unfortunately their cells do not respond to it. This type of diabetes usually occurs in adults over 35 years of age.
In both cases the glucose is unable to move into the cells and the blood glucose levels will increase which cause serious health complications.
The last 30 years has seen a threefold increase in the number of cases of childhood diabetes.
In Europe and America, Type 2 diabetes has been seen for the first time in young people. This is probably in part caused by the increasing trend towards obesity in our society. Meaning that the foods that our children are consuming is causing dangerous health problems
But obesity doesn’t explain the increase in the numbers of Type 1 diabetes in children – who make up the majority of new cases. But maybe the answer lies within the types of foods they are eating??
Here are some trends around the world
- in Japan it’s 3 per 100,000.
- in England and Wales 17 children per 100,000 develop diabetes each year
- in Scotland the figure is 25 per 100,000
- in Finland it’s 43 per 100,000
