Transcript of "Diabetes multimedia project"

  1. 1. Diabetes Awareness By: Kelsey Walker
  2. 2. Terms <ul><li>Cataract: condition where the eye becomes cloudy. </li></ul><ul><li>Glaucoma: condition where the pressure within the eye causes damage to the optic nerve, which sends visual images to the brain. </li></ul><ul><li>Hyperglycemia: condition where there is too much glucose or sugar in the blood. </li></ul><ul><li>Hypoglycemia: condition where there is too little glucose in the blood. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Diabetic peripheral neuropathy: condition where the sensitivity of nerves to pain, temperature, and pressure is dulled, particularly in the legs and feet. </li></ul><ul><li>Kidney dialysis: process where blood is filtered through a dialysis machine to remove waste products that would normally be removed by the kidneys. </li></ul><ul><li>Pancreas: gland located behind the stomach that produces insulin. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is diabetes? <ul><li>Condition in which the pancreas no longer produces enough insulin or the cells stop responding to the insulin produced. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What are the symptoms? <ul><li>Thirsty </li></ul><ul><li>Tired </li></ul><ul><li>Hungry </li></ul><ul><li>Frequent urination </li></ul><ul><li>Weight loss </li></ul><ul><li>Sweet smelling urine </li></ul>
  5. 5. Types of Diabetes <ul><li>Type 1(Juvenile) </li></ul><ul><li>-Childhood, insulin dependent </li></ul><ul><li>Type 2 (Age-onset, adult-onset) </li></ul><ul><li>-Poor health, non insulin dependent (misleading) </li></ul><ul><li>Gestational </li></ul><ul><li>-Pregnancy </li></ul>
  6. 6. Type 1 <ul><li>Developed during childhood or adolescence. </li></ul><ul><li>Body produces little to no insulin. </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid swings of blood sugar levels between hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia. </li></ul><ul><li>Require several injections of insulin. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Type 2 <ul><li>More common form of diabetes. </li></ul><ul><li>Overweight and poor diet and no exercise. </li></ul><ul><li>Age 50 and over. </li></ul><ul><li>Milder form, controlled with diet and oral medication. (insulin sometimes necessary) </li></ul>
  8. 8. Gestational <ul><li>Second or third trimester of pregnancy. </li></ul><ul><li>Resides after birth. </li></ul><ul><li>Babies are born prematurely, have hyperglycemia, and have excess body fat. </li></ul><ul><li>Treated with diet. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Insulin <ul><li>Type 1 needs several injections. </li></ul><ul><li>Type 2 may need injections. </li></ul><ul><li>Small needle, injection pen, or insulin pump. </li></ul><ul><li>Injections given subcutaneously, where there is looser skin. </li></ul><ul><li>Works in 15-20 minutes, lasts 6 hours. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Hypoglycemia <ul><li>Too much insulin </li></ul><ul><li>Too little food </li></ul><ul><li>Alcohol consumption </li></ul><ul><li>Increased exercise </li></ul><ul><li>Hungry, cranky, confused, tired. </li></ul><ul><li>Diabetic coma </li></ul><ul><li>Fruit juice, candy, high sugar snacks </li></ul>
  11. 11. Uncontrolled diabetes <ul><li>Blindness </li></ul><ul><li>End-stage renal disease </li></ul><ul><li>Limb amputations </li></ul><ul><li>Doubles the risk for heart disease and stroke. </li></ul><ul><li>Cataracts and glaucoma </li></ul><ul><li>Diabetic peripheral neuropathy </li></ul>
  12. 12. Prevention <ul><li>Research continues for cure </li></ul><ul><li>Type 1 is unpredictable </li></ul><ul><li>Type 2 can be reduced by maintaining ideal weight and exercising. </li></ul><ul><li>Healthy lifestyle </li></ul>
