How a person comes to ‘get’ diabetes, and the subsequent necessary treatment will depend on the type of diabetes.
Type 1 is far more rapid onset and requires constant and ongoing pharmaceutical intervention to prevent permanent and life-threatening damage.
Type 2 is a ‘creeping’ disease. Healthy lifestyle habits – both diet and exercise – can prevent it ever becoming a concern. However, many are largely unaware that their own lifestyles are causing hidden, accumulating problems to their body, until it is too late.
Certainly, the warning signs may be there, but still not recognized for what they are until after a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes is confirmed.
This report answers some of the questions that will be asked by diabetics, including differences between the two types. There is information specific to each type, and also material common to both.
