Celebrities Battling Diabetes

Diabetes has reached near epidemic levels in America and nobody is spared from the statistics. Here are some well known personalities that have the disease. eVitamins 대한민국.

In the United States alone, an estimated 23.6 million people have diabetes. Each year, around 1.6 million people who belong with the age bracket 20 and above are diagnosed with this serious lifelong condition.

Diabetes Defined

Medical experts define diabetes as a type of metabolism disorder. Metabolism refers to the way the body uses digested food as a source of energy and for growth. When food is broken down, most of it becomes glucose, a form of sugar found in the blood. Glucose is the body’s primary source of energy. For glucose to be absorbed by the cells, the hormone insulin is needed. The pancreas produces insulin for the body.

People with diabetes produce very little or no insulin. It can also be due to the cells not responding to the insulin produced. When this happens, glucose accumulates in the blood, overflows into the individual’s urine and passes out of the person’s body. Hence, the important source of fuel for the body is lost.

The Three Types of Diabetes

  1. Type 1

    This type of diabetes is an autoimmune disease which means that the body’s immune system attacks a certain part of the body it has categorized as an “enemy.” The immune system starts to attack the beta cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin, hence the cells are destroyed and very little or no insulin is produced at all. A person suffering from Type 1 diabetes needs to take insulin everyday to live. Its symptoms include constant hunger, increased thirst and urination, weight loss, extreme fatigue and blurred vision. A person with this type of diabetes must be diagnosed and treated with insulin because he can lapse into ketoacidosis, a life-threatening diabetic coma if not properly treated.
  2. Type 2

     The most common form of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is usually associated with obesity, old age, family history of diabetes, ethnicity and physical inactivity. Studies show that about 90 - 95 percent of people with diabetes have Type 2 and about 80 percent of this is due to being overweight. The pancreas produce insulin but the body can’t use it effectively. The condition is called “insulin resistance.” Symptoms of Type 2 diabetes include nausea, fatigue, unusual thirst, frequent urination, blurred vision and slow healing of wounds. No symptoms are shown by some people. These symptoms develop gradually.
  3. Gestational

     This type of diabetes develops only during a woman’s pregnancy. Women with gestational diabetes have 20 to 50 percent chance of developing the Type 2 diabetes in five to ten years.
