With Type I diabetes, the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Consequently, anyone with Type I diabetes must receive daily insulin injections. The insulin must be injected into the body because if it is taken orally, stomach acids will make the insulin ineffective to the body. The primary targets for this type of diabetes are children and young adults, but it can affect people of any age. The destruction of beta cells cause Type I diabetes.

According to American Diabetes Association (n.d.), there are 23.6 million children and adults in the United States who have diabetes and most of them have diabetes type 2. Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a condition in which “either the body does not respond to insulin’s action or there is just not enough insulin to go around or both” (Touchette, 2005, p. 21). Insulin is a hormone necessary to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life (American Diabetes Association [ADA], n.d.). Having diabetes increases the risk for serious complications such as heart disease, blindness, nerve damage, and kidney damage (The Patient Education Institute, Inc., 2008). Therefore, teaching newly diagnosed clients about the preventive
This occurs either because insulin is not available (Type 1 diabetes) or because the cells are resistant to the present insulin (Type 2 diabetes). Hypoglycemia occurs when blood glucose levels become dangerously low, generally because there is too much insulin in the blood compared to available glucose. Ketoacidosis is a situation that can occur when individuals with diabetes become severely hyper- or hypoglycemic. It occurs most commonly in people dealing with Type 1 diabetes, but anyone with severe hyper- or hypoglycemia is at
Nicole Bailey Principles of Health and Wellness 11/3/2013 Diabetes Assessment Diabetes is a metabolic disease, that is the body’s inability to create any or enough insulin causes raised amounts of sugar in the blood. There are two kinds of diabetes type 1 and type 2. Genetic factors play a role in type 1 diabetes.

Some think that if you are diabetic, that you are born with it. That may be true if you have type I diabetes but if you have type II, which is not the case. Most of, or all of the people who obtain type II diabetes can get it from just not being healthy or eating fatty or sugary foods more than usual people do.

With Type 1 the person’s body does not produce insulin in order to break down the sugars, starches and other foods a person eats. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. According to the ADA, “In Type 2 Diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin” (1). This is dangerous because a body needs insulin in order to produce glucose for energy.
Dale’s daughter was diagnosed with Type 1, which is more complicated than type 2. His daughter unfortunately died from complications of the disease. Dale’s daughter had to take insulin very often during the days and it was a challenge for her to regulate her diabetes, which in turn lead to complications affecting other organs of her body. This is one of the main reasons why Dale believes it is very crucial that diabetic patients maintain their health by frequently monitoring their blood sugar level, constant routine doctor visits and taking care of themselves through dieting and exercising. Due to the death of their daughter and the seriousness of the disease, Dale and his wife are motivated to stay aware of complications caused from the disease, signs and symptoms, how to maintain a safe, healthy and normal lifestyle while living with the
