Women, revamp your diet today. You're more prone to diabetes

Shadow Home secretary Diane Abbott, Oscar winning actor Tom Hanks and tennis great Billie Jean-King all suffer from Type 2, while Prime Minister Theresa May is a Type 1 diabetic.

She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 13.

However, contrary to the common notion that diabetes is caused by excessive consumption of sugar or certain types of foods, the experts insist that "it is not sugar or foods that cause diabetes".

What is Type 2 diabetes?
As per a study, approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1.

Claire Fleming, acting national director at Diabetes Scotland, said: "Diabetes affects more than 291,000 people in Scotland and is the fastest-growing health crisis of our time".

World Diabetes Day was first introduced in 1991, and founded by both the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization.

Market Status of Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry, Market Competition of Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry by Company, Market Analysis of Type 1 Diabetes Drug Consumption by Application/Type and Region, Market Forecast of Global and Chinese Type 1 Diabetes Drug Market, Type 1 Diabetes Drug Market Cost and Profit Estimation, Global and Chinese Type 1 Diabetes Drug Market Share, Global and Chinese Supply and Consumption of Type 1 Diabetes Drug Market.

Could you have pre-diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes usually develops in middle-aged or older people, but there has been a rise in cases among young, overweight people.

With such a high prevalence of diabetes, and the latest figures suggesting nearly a third of New Zealanders were obese with a further 35% overweight, more treatment options were needed, Dr Carroll said.

Access to essential diabetes medicines and technologies, self-management education and information are therefore the key to achieving optimal diabetes outcomes not only amongst women but also their families.

Louis has since addressed the matter and many of his vital relationships have fell by the side in the aftermath. FX - the studio that gave life to his comedy series Louie - also cut ties with the comedian.

Plus your genetic make-up plays a strong part.

Why does blood sugar matter?

Below is a list of five such foods that can help you bring down your blood glucose levels.

It works by storing any excess sugar in your blood in your liver and then releasing the sugar when you need it.

"However, before the body can make use of this glucose, one hormone is very important and that is insulin".

It is a small, white, circular patch which monitors blood sugar levels and will warn her when she has to inject insulin. They are also low in calories and carbohydrates and therefore, do not cause sudden spikes to your blood sugar levels.

What are the symptoms and how can they be treated?
.

This medication is created to lower blood sugar levels, but can not cure the disease. That means when I eat, I have to inject insulin, which I do. Eating lots of fruit, vegetables and whole grains is recommended, as it plenty of exercise to keep levels down. Packed with large amounts of an insoluble fibre called lignan, flaxseeds help in reducing the chances of heart complications and also the risk of strokes linked with diabetes.

If you have any of the above symptoms, go to your GP.

Can I avoid getting it?
The crucial thing to me is being a diabetic doesn't stop you from doing anything'.
