Type 1 Diabetes: The Insulin-Dependent Condition

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This results in a lack of insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. People with type 1 diabetes require insulin therapy to survive.

Our blog provides valuable insights into living with type 1 diabetes. From tips on managing blood sugar levels to the latest advancements in insulin delivery systems, we cover it all. We also share inspiring stories from individuals who have successfully embraced life with type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 Diabetes: The Lifestyle-Related Condition

Type 2 diabetes is a condition characterized by insulin resistance, where the body’s cells do not respond effectively to insulin. This leads to high blood sugar levels. While genetics can play a role, lifestyle factors such as poor diet, lack of physical activity, and obesity are major contributors to the development of type 2 diabetes.

Our blog dives deep into the world of type 2 diabetes, offering practical advice on nutrition, exercise, and weight management. We debunk common myths and provide evidence-based information to help you make informed decisions about your health.
