What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic condition where the body has a hard time maintaining healthy levels of glucose in the blood. For our bodies to work effectively, we need to convert glucose into energy through a hormone called insulin. Insulin helps to regulate sugar levels found in our blood. When you have diabetes, your body may have trouble recognising insulin, insulin is no longer produced or is not produced in sufficient amounts which leads to high sugar levels in the blood resulting in a range of short-term and long-term complications.

There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. There is no cure for either type, but it can be managed through daily self-care to minimise any complications. Management includes diet, exercise, weight control, blood pressure monitoring, regular blood tests and taking prescribed medications, if needed, as directed.

What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes?

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition, defined by the pancreas not producing enough or any insulin at all. It is more commonly diagnosed in children and young adults, though it can occur at any age.

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition, defined by when insulin is not working effectively, the pancreas is not producing sufficient insulin or a combination of the two. It can be related to ageing, family history, medications and lifestyle factors like obesity and inactivity.

FAQ

If I feel well, do I still need to take my medications?

Yes, medication is aimed at reducing your risks of experiencing diabetic complications so it's important to take your medication as prescribed.

What do you mean by ‘lifestyle management’?

Lifestyle management means ensuring you’re eating a healthy diet, exercising, not smoking, keeping within a healthy weight range and, if you consume alcohol, that you’re doing it safely.

If I’m only taking tablets for my diabetes, will I also need insulin injections?

If you’re able to control your blood sugar levels through lifestyle management and oral medications, then you minimise the future need for insulin injections. If you do need insulin, regular check-ups will allow for appropriate and safe initiation when needed.
