What is Diabetes and The Different Types

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder and chronic health condition that affects how the body turns food into energy within the blood cells.

Types of Diabetes High Point, NC

When you eat, the food you consume is broken down, turned into sugar or glucose, and released into your bloodstream. As the sugar levels in your blood rise, the pancreas is signaled to produce insulin; this opens up the cells to receive the sugars and convert them into energy.

When someone has diabetes, it is because the body is not making enough insulin or is unable to utilize it as it should. When there is insufficient insulin or the cells simply stop responding to the insulin that is produced the bloodstream holds all the extra sugars and, over time, results in serious health conditions such as heart and kidney disease and loss of vision.

Types of Diabetes We Treat

There are 3 main types of diabetes, type 1, type 2, and gestational.

Type 1 is believed to be an autoimmune response, meaning the body attacks itself and stops the body from making insulin. It is usually diagnosed early in children and young adults since it develops quickly. This requires a lifetime of daily insulin administration in order to survive; there is currently no known way to prevent type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 is developed over a long period of time and is typically diagnosed in adults; however, we are seeing more children, teens, and young adults develop type 2. The good news is type 2 can be prevented or prolonged with lifestyle adjustments such as weight management, staying active, and eating healthy.

Gestational diabetes is developed during pregnancy in women who have never had it. Women with gestational diabetes are at higher risk for their children to develop health problems. Typically this type of diabetes goes away for the mother after the baby is born but can increase the risk of type 2 later in life.

Physiologic Insulin Resensitization (PIR)

Diabetes Treatment Winston-Salem, NC
While typical treatment for diabetes requires insulin injections as a prescription drug, there is a revolutionary, cutting-edge treatment in Physiologic Insulin Resensitization in which insulin is administered intravenously as a hormone.

Meaning the root cause of diabetes is being targeted by a modality that allows insulin to be used in such a way that it bio-mimics the body’s natural physiology.

This treatment is designed to reduce insulin resistance allowing blood sugar to enter cells and be converted to energy more effectively.
