DO WE CARE TO KNOW. DIABETES!

In grave difficulties, and with little hope, the boldest measures are the safest. Never make a defense or apology before you be accused.

Type II diabetes is often diagnosed in adults due to the pancreas not being able to make enough insulin. People with Type II diabetes may also have an impaired ability to use insulin well to control blood glucose.

A cowardly cur barks more fiercely than it bites.


Due to the obesity epidemic, there have been higher rates of Type II diabetes in children and young adults. Type II diabetes is most commonly controlled through diet, exercise, oral and/or insulin injections.

If you're already in a hole, it's no use to continue digging.

Type I diabetes is normally diagnosed in children and young adults due to the pancreas's inability to produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar (glucose), starches, and other foods into the energy needed for daily life. Type I diabetics require daily injections of insulin to control the condition.

Do not choose to be wrong for the sake of being different.

Are all forms of diabetes the same?

This couldn’t be further from the truth! The American Diabetes Associations claims there are three primary types of diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes, also referred to as juvenile diabetes, is an autoimmune disease. Type 1 diabetics are unable to produce the insulin hormone, so they will require insulin until a cure is found. While type 1 diabetics make up a small percent of the diabetes community, up to 95% have type 2, which is developed later in life.

We trifle when we assign limits to our desires, since nature hath set none.

With type 2, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the body starts to ignore the insulin hormones. Obesity and being overweight is a large contributing factor, but genetics also play a role.

Gestational diabetes is a form of type 2 diabetes, but it develops during pregnancy.

By now, we should notice that these forms of diabetes are not the same!

Diabetes can be spread like an Infectious Disease?

This is an absolutely absurd myth that diabetes can be spread by getting involved with someone with diabetes.

If you've made up your mind you can do something, you're absolutely right. If you've made up your mind you can't do something, you're absolutely right.

Seriously what could not be a myth, awareness is not at it's best when people's knowledge is enquired on DIABETIC COMA.

Diabetic coma refers to the situation when a doctor is confronted with an unconscious patient about whom nothing is known except that he has diabetes.

The man who really wants to do something finds a way, the other finds an excuse.

Paramedics may be called to rescue an unconscious person by friends who identify him as diabetic.

Brief descriptions of the three major conditions are followed by a discussion of the diagnostic process used to distinguish among them, as well as a few other conditions which must be considered, during such eventful situation as diabetic coma.

The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain.

According to studies there are three different types of diabetic coma:

Severe diabetic hypoglycaemia.

Diabetic ketoacidosis advanced enough to result in unconsciousness from a combination of severe hyperglycaemia, dehydration and shock, and exhaustion.

Hyperosmolar nonketotic coma in which extreme hyperglycaemia and dehydration alone are sufficient to cause unconsciousness.

Life is a progress from want to want, not from enjoyment to enjoyment.
