    • Hyperglycemia: condition where there is too much glucose or sugar in the blood.
    • Hypoglycemia: condition where there is too little glucose in the blood.
    • Insulin: a hormone or chemical produced by the pancreas, insulin is needed by cells in order to use glucose (sugar), the body’s main source of energy.
    • Diabetic peripheral neuropathy: condition where the sensitivity of nerves to pain, temperature, and pressure is dulled, particularly in the legs and feet.
    • Kidney dialysis: process where blood is filtered through a dialysis machine to remove waste products that would normally be removed by the kidneys.
    • Pancreas: gland located behind the stomach that produces insulin.

    • Blindness
    • End-stage renal disease
    • Limb amputations
    • Doubles the risk for heart disease and stroke.
    • Cataracts and glaucoma
    • Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
  • 12. Prevention
    • Research continues for cure
    • Type 1 is unpredictable
    • Type 2 can be reduced by maintaining ideal weight and exercising.
