Section 4: Living with Diabetes
Insulin is a hormone that causes cells to remove glucose from the bloodstream.
Type 1 diabetes is when the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells. Type 2 diabetes is when the body can produce insulin but the body’s cells fail to respond to it.
Two ways to detect diabetes are: Asking your doctor and strokes. Two ways to treat type 1: Keep blood-glucose levels safe and taking insulin doses. Two ways to treat type 2: Diet and exercise.
Ways to prevent type 2 diabetes are: Maintaining a healthy weight, avoid tobacco products, and
reduce the stress in your life.
