In celebration of National Diabetes Awareness Month, Divabetic’s kicking to the curb all the common myths associated with diabetes. Of course, were going to do it with style! Timex Social Club’s 80’s classic dance track “Rumors” helps us to dispel DIABETES MYTH #3: There’s only one dangerous kind of diabetes.
FACT: Not true. Diabetes refers to a group of disease which ALL require serious attention. Diabetes is the body’s inability to properly convert glucose from food into energy, leading to a high level of sugar in the blood. The main kinds include type 1 (formerly known as juvenile-onset diabetes), type 2 (once called adult-onset diabetes), gestational (which occurs only during pregnancy) and pre-diabetes. Managing any type of diabetes requires balancing food, physical activity, and, if needed, medications. And while people with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin every day for their entire lives, type 2 diabetes is no less of a concern, because ignoring it could lead to devastating health-related complications such as blindness, kidney failure, amputation, heart attack, and stroke.
