    • Diabetes Awareness By: Kelsey Walker
    • Terms
      • Cataract: condition where the eye becomes cloudy.
      • Glaucoma: condition where the pressure within the eye causes damage to the optic nerve, which sends visual images to the brain.
      • 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.
    • What is diabetes?
      • Condition in which the pancreas no longer produces enough insulin or the cells stop responding to the insulin produced.

      • Gestational
      • -Pregnancy
    • Type 1
      • Developed during childhood or adolescence.
      • Body produces little to no insulin.
      • Rapid swings of blood sugar levels between hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia.
      • Require several injections of insulin.

      • More common form of diabetes.
      • Overweight and poor diet and no exercise.
      • Age 50 and over.

      • Treated with diet.
    • Insulin
      • Type 1 needs several injections.
      • Type 2 may need injections.
      • Small needle, injection pen, or insulin pump.
      • Injections given subcutaneously, where there is looser skin.
      • Works in 15-20 minutes, lasts 6 hours.
    • Hypoglycemia
      • Too much insulin
      • Too little food
      • Alcohol consumption
      • Increased exercise
      • Hungry, cranky, confused, tired.
      • Diabetic coma
      • Fruit juice, candy, high sugar snacks
    • Uncontrolled diabetes
      • Blindness
      • End-stage renal disease
      • Limb amputations
      • Doubles the risk for heart disease and stroke.
      • Cataracts and glaucoma
      • Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
    • Prevention
      • Research continues for cure
      • Type 1 is unpredictable
      • Type 2 can be reduced by maintaining ideal weight and exercising.
      • Healthy lifestyle
