Resource Properties

Abstract:

This three-page handout educates people about diabetes, a disease in which a person's body cannot properly use the food they eat for energy and their blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are too high. It discusses the role of insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, and defines the three main types of diabetes as Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes during pregnancy. It identifies risk factors for diabetes and describes signs and symptoms. The document outlines ways people can manage and care for their diabetes, and recommends they talk to their doctor, nurse, dietitian, and pharmacist.
