Diabetes



1. Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are below normal.

False
This is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal. It is caused by a lack of insulin. When someone is suffering from this disease, their body lacks insulin or does not use insulin properly which causes sugar to build up in the blood. One very important treatment option for this disease is the use of insulin shots to increase the insulin level in the blood. Many diabetes supplies, including insulin, are used by patients on a regular basis.


2. Extreme hunger is one of the diabetes symptoms.

True
Diabetes symptoms can include extreme hunger and thirst, weight loss, dry skin, a sore throat and changes in vision. If someone thinks that he or she may have the disease, the Internet is a great place to research to find out more. If access to the Internet is not available, it may be helpful to visit a local library or bookstore to find resources that will provide some insight into this disease. A physician can properly diagnose and treat a patient if this disease is truly affecting them.


3. Diabetes can be passed down by genetics.

True
The risk factors include family history, older age, obesity, physical inactivity and ethnicity. The juvenile-onset disease accounts for the minority of cases. Type 2, or adult-onset, accounts for 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases. The diabetes symptoms for each type are relatively the same.


4. Diabetes supplies can be ordered on the Internet.

True
Diabetes supplies such as insulin pumps and testing kits can be ordered over the Internet. Most companies can deliver to the patient's home within a few days. These supplies are often on sale on the Internet.


5. For God, no problem or illness, such as diabetes, is unimportant.

True
Matthew 10:29-31 - Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
