What Is Diabetes? | 2 Minute Guide | Diabetes UK

3.8 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes in the UK, but a lot of people still don’t know what diabetes is.

Diabetes is a serious, lifelong condition where your blood glucose level is too high.

There are two main types, Type 1 and Type 2. They’re different conditions, but they’re both serious. There are some other rarer types of diabetes too.

  1. I preferred the delivery style of the previous version. The music in this one, is far too ramped up and intense and is in the foreground instead of the background. The previous version gave better info … or maybe it was just easier to listen to the delivered content.

  2. What is funny to me is that they want us to prevent diabetes yet they promote eating dairy, processed meats because they get sponsored by the companies that produce/sell that and advertised eating that food on their website. It's actually pathetic and proves that they only think about the money and not lives. Put money into prevention and not the medicine to manage to condition when it occurs.

  3. There are lots of these documentaries and explain what diabetes is..But not any, how it comes about..Most people in India get it in the late thirties.The type2. Is there is a definite explanation?

  4. Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough—or any—insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells. Am also suffering from this deadly disease before I met Dr Ologunebi online that cures me with his herbal medicine.

  7. GREETINGS TO YOU ALL. Most Doctors say Herpes Virus do not have a medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes is not a special virus; your immune system has the power to fight it back but because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body. But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body within just 14days without damaging any of your cells. Natural herbs kills the bad cells carrying the herpes virus totally! within just 14 days.

  10. One thing that really frustrates me about the subject of Diabetes is, how many people out there aren't aware of, & don't even believe, either. That there is such a thing as TYPE 1.5 also. 1.5 is what my maternal grandmother had years ago before she died in 1991 at 72 yrs old. I've called the Diabetes Association & told them about my grandma having this & that I'd certainly appreciate it if they would start advertising this Type of Diabetes also. So far, no luck. Just like those who have 1 or 2 alone, Type 1.5 is just as dangerous too if & when it isn't found or treated, either.

    For those who aren't aware of what Type 1.5 is, The most straightforward description I can give is this. You have just as much symptoms of Type 1 as you do Type 2 Diabetes. You can wake up extremely low & fall asleep with it dangerously high. It reminds me of myself & my grandma whom when we both started in our early years having thyroid problems. We would go from hyper one week & be skinny like a rake to hypo the following week & have actually gained 50 or more pounds without ever eating differently, more or less, changing exercise routines, etc… Our metabolism in our bodies changed that much & that quickly too. No joke, all fact.

    When my grandma got older & started having diabetes symptoms, they had a hard time determining if she was 1 or 2 & that's because she had both. She had just as much of Type 1's symptoms as she did Type 2's symptoms. She was 50% of each. Back then, they didn't know much about how to treat someone with both where I live. So, grandma ended up with Gangrene, amongst many other issues too as a result of untreated thyroid problems, etc…

    I really would appreciate it if doctors out there would make videos like this one about people like my late grandma who had Type 1.5 Diabetes. It really needs to be advertised & put out there because, there could be many people out there who are unaware that they are like my grandma was & a friend of mine who is now in her 50s with it also. More people need to become aware of this issue too, if we want all people to be treated fairly, & for their bodies to be able to fight & be given a fair chance at life too. So please. Would you mind doing a video that explains to all people possible that my grandma's problem was & is a real problem & not some story that I made up as may people think? Too many people even medical professionals don't believe that this problem exists. Thank you very much for your time & help in this matter. It's greatly appreciated by us all. Take care.
