Test Your Knowledge About Diabetes

 

What is type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body does not use the insulin that is produced effectively. Ninety per cent of people with diabetes have type 2.

 

Is diabetes serious?

Diabetes is the leading cause of death by disease. If it is left untreated or improperly managed, the high levels of blood sugar associated with diabetes can slowly damage both the small and large vessels in the body, resulting in a variety of complications, including heart disease, adult blindness, serious kidney disease and limb amputations.

 

What are the signs and symptoms?

Signs and symptoms of diabetes include the following:

  • Unusual thirst

  • Frequent urination

  • Unusual weight loss

  • Extreme fatigue or lack of energy

  • Blurred vision

  • Frequent or recurring infections

  • Cuts and bruises that are slow to heal

  • Tingling or numbness in hands or feet

It is also important to recognize that many people who have type 2 diabetes may display no symptoms.

 

Can you prevent diabetes?

Scientists believe that lifestyle and type 2 diabetes are closely linked. This means that lifestyle is one area individuals can focus on to help prevent or delay the onset of the disease.
