When food is eaten the body breaks down all the starches and sugars into glucose, which essentially fuels the cells in the body. Insulin carries the sugar from the blood into the cells. Glucose builds up in the blood instead of moving into the cells, and this leads to diabetes complications. The buildup of Glucose in the blood also can lead to serious problems with the eyes, heart, nerves, kidneys, and gums and teeth. The risk for being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes is higher for people who are older, obese, have family history of the disease and who do not exercise.
The cells are located in the pancreas, and they are responsible for producing insulin. The ensuing deficient in insulin results in amplified urine and blood glucose. IDDM is a chronic disease resulting in high mortality rate throughout the globe. The disease is not curable, but patients learn to manage it throughout their lifetime. Some of the classical symptoms of the disease include loss of weight, urinating frequently, extreme thirst as well as hunger (Cooke & Plotnick, 2008).
In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas does not produce any insulin. Insulin is a hormone. It makes our body's cells absorb glucose from the blood. The glucose is stored in the liver and muscle as glycogen and stops the body from using fat as a source of energy. If the amount of glucose in the blood is too high, it can seriously damage the body's organs.
Outline for Informative Speech Thesis: Today, I want to discuss what diabetes is and how it affects people daily. I. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. a. Insulin is hormone that helps food turn into energy for daily life b. It is the 6th leading cause of death by disease an it cannot be cured c. It is estimated that there are 23.6 million Americans with diabetes; 5.7 million of them are undiagnosed.

Diabetes Abstract Type two Diabetes is a disease that is commonly seen in people who are obese and live a sedentary lifestyle. It usually develops in adulthood and can be prevented by changes in habits such as a healthy diet and exercise. In Diabetes type two, the pancreas makes insulin, but the body’s cells become resistant to the effects of it. Insulin tells the body’s cells to take in glucose that they in turn use for energy. If a person develops type two Diabetes, it can be controlled using a combination of exercising, eating healthier, oral medications, and insulin therapy.
If this physiological disorder is untreated, it can cause very serious health problems. You treat this condition by a healthy diet and keeping active, also people with Type 2 diabetes take tablets to lower their blood glucose levels however you can also inject insulin in the stomach/ upper arm or thigh. You get type tow diabetes by having an unhealthy diet/being overweight and not doing enough exercise. When you get diagnosed with Diabetes it will not get worse as you get older if you remember to take your insulin at the right times every day. You get diagnosed with diabetes through being overweight/ unhealthy diet and lack of exercise it also only appears in later life.
Like many illness, there are different classifications of DI. Central Diabetes Insipidus is the most common. Damage to the pituitary gland causes a disruption of the standard storage and release of ADH. Another form of DI is Nephrogenic DI. This is the result of the kidneys being incapable of responding to ADH.
It is not known why this happens but as a result, the pancreas is unable to produce insulin. It, therefore, must be injected into the blood stream via a needle or pump. This is not the case in type 2 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes can produce insulin but maybe not enough, or the insulin may not work as well as it needs to. This is also referred to insulin resistance (Diabetes Australia, 2015).
Personal Impact Video on Type I Diabetes Angeline Canella NUR 427 Aug. 18th, 2015 University of Phoenix Professor Karen Rousseau Personal Impact Video on Type I Diabetes According to the “American Diabetes Association” (2015), Type I diabetes is usually diagnosed in childhood or early teens, but can occur at any age. It is also referred to as juvenile diabetes. A patient that has type I diabetes, the pancreases produces little of no insulin that results in a fluctuation where the body cannot function properly. The body's immune system will attack and destroy beta cells in the pancreases causing the production of insulin. The result is the body will not get enough fuel to function.
Type 1 Diabetes affects mostly children and young adults. Their pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin is an important hormone. It is needed to convert sugar and starches into energy. People who suffer from diabetes have to constantly be checking their blood sugar level throughout the day, and have to calculate how much insulin they need to take.
