World Diabetes Day - 14th November

It’s world diabetes day and I’d like to dedicate this post to my client Neil who in the last 4-5 reversed the life changing diagnosis of type 2 and totally reversed his liver damage diagnosis after he changed the way he lived by taking up healthy diet and exercise.

Symptoms of type 1 diabetes can be night waking, lethargy and drinking and peeing a lot because your body is trying to get rid of the glucose in your bloodstream or at least diluted a little bit, you're drinking more, you're losing weight or failure to grow if you're a child , it's very common as hwell blurred vision, and of course, tiredness, lethargy, exhaustion, because you can't get the sugar into your cells to use the energy. So those are really common. I mean, it's diabetes is one in 10 people worldwide, 4 million people in the UK and 850,000 people in the UK something like that, estimated to be undiagnosed. So it's very important that everyone knows the signs.

So what is the difference between type one and type two diabetes?

So both are problems with high blood sugar caused by low insulin or lack of insulin? In type one diabetes, your body has destroyed the base of your pancreas that makes them insulin so you have no insulin At all. That's why it's a life threatening emergency. You need insulin to live in type two diabetes frequently associated with weight gain and a bit later in life your insulin levels go down make you become a bit more resistant. And in the long term, it can have a huge impact on your health and your life expectancy.

So in both cases, keep an eye out for the warning signs.
