By PF Louis(NaturalNews) There are two forms of diabetes: Type one and type two. Both types involve imbalanced blood sugar and insulin issues. Insulin is the hormone that helps convert glucose into the cellular energy that's needed for the cells to metabolize nutrients.Type one diabetes is sometimes called juvenile diabetes because it usually occurs early in life. The pancreas doesn't produce any or enough insulin and usually needs to be supplied externally.That often means insulin injections by manual syringe, or an easier managed insulin injection pen, insulin pills, or a portable insulin pump.The pancreas is usually functioning with type two diabetes, which normally occurs later in life. However, the body is insulin resistant, or not using the insulin well enough. Type two diabetes can often be controlled by exercise and diet while monitoring blood sugar.Again, chronically high blood sugar is an indicator for both types of diabetes. But sometimes low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) occurs, especially with type two diabetes.Many diabetic symptoms cross over with adrenal and thyroid issues as well as fibromyalgia. So it's best to get your blood sugar tested to determine whether or not your health problems are diabetes related.
