#FridayInspirations


On today's Friday Inspirations forum, we will be inspiring ourselves as pertains to our health so that we can be enlightened and also inspire others. And today, we will be learning about diabetes.

Diabetes is a sickness that may lead to death or insanity if adequate care is not taken. Diabetes takes place when the body has high blood sugar level or when the body is not producing sufficient insulin or both.

There are 2 types of diabetes:

Type 1 diabetes - this is the type of diabetes in were there is no production of insulin in the body.

Type 2 diabetes- with this type of diabetes, the body isn't producing adequate insulin for it to function well or for the cells in the body doesn't react to insulin.

Study shows that 90% of diabetic cases are Type 2 diabetes while the remaining 10% are Type 1 diabetes.

What are the likely signs of diabetes?

4) Always hungry

5) Injuries or sores that take a while to heal

6) Losing weight for no reason

7) Itchy and dry skin
