:00 Hello everyone with diabetes! Welcome to another episode of the Your Diabestie podcast. This podcast is designed to help you so you don’t have to deal with diabetes alone. I’m your host, Neela Clark. I have adult subclinical autoimmune diabetes. And today, we’re diving into an important, yet often misunderstood topic. What causes diabetes? This episode covers the basics, from causes and risk factors to symptoms and tests. So grab a cup of tea or coffee and join me today as we learn a little more about the basics of diabetes. I hope you enjoy this episode.

4:38 – Mila Clark
Today’s episode is sponsored by the Glucose Guide app, Cigarette Glucose Stabilizer, and BioCare Nutrition. Thank you to our sponsors for allowing us to host the conversation on platforms like Diabestie. But first, let’s find out the causes of diabetes. Diabetes is like a puzzle, right? Puzzles are complex with multiple pieces that all need to be put together to see the whole picture. One of the important factors in diabetes is genetics, which influences the predisposition to diabetes.

5:20 – Mila Clark
But diabetes isn’t just hardwired into our genes. Lifestyle factors such as diet and physical activity may also play an important role in influencing the risk of developing diabetes. Simply put, diabetes is a chronic, progressive disease that affects how the body processes glucose, or sugar. Glucose is an important energy source for the cells of our body. This is where the hormone insulin comes into play. Insulin plays an important role in regulating blood sugar levels. However, for diabetics, either our bodies cannot produce enough insulin or we have become insulin resistant to its effects.

6:03 – Mila Clark
As a result, glucose builds up in the bloodstream, which can lead to serious health complications if not managed. There are more than 10 different types of diabetes, but in this episode we’ll discuss the most common types of diabetes. These are type 1, type 1.5, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system attacks and destroys the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. And this type of diabetes is usually diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood.

6:38 – Mila Clark
However, this is not always the case. I am a prime example of this as her LADA patient. Managing type 1 diabetes requires daily insulin injections. It can be due to basal insulin, bolus insulin, or a combination of both inhaled insulins. There are a variety of insulins on the market that help people with Type 1 and insulin-dependent Type 2 people manage their blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin or no longer produces enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels.

7:20 – Mila Clark
And while this type of diabetes is commonly associated with lifestyle factors such as obesity, lack of a healthy diet, and lack of physical activity, it is very important to remember that these are not the cause of diabetes. It is important. These are factors that cause diabetes, but they do not cause diabetes. Also, have a meal. Food does not cause diabetes. It’s a misconception that this episode has to get out of the way. Food is not the cause. Diet is a factor, but not the cause. Finally, gestational diabetes is a temporary form of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy.

8:02 – Mila Clark
Although it usually resolves after childbirth, women who have gestational diabetes are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. And when it comes to risk factors, there are a few more pieces to this puzzle. Family history, age, weight, and high blood pressure are all factors that increase your chances of developing diabetes. And understanding these risks can help empower us to take control of our health. The exact cause of type 1 diabetes is still unknown, but it is thought to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

8:43 – Mila Clark
When it comes to type 2 diabetes, risk factors include family history, obesity, lack of exercise, unhealthy diet, and older age. Gestational diabetes is caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy. Let’s take a closer look at the symptoms of diabetes. Because symptoms are our body’s way of sending an SOS signal that something is going on. Additionally, symptoms such as frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, and fatigue are very common warning signs of diabetes.

9:17 – Mila Clark
It is very important to understand that these symptoms can be a trigger for you to seek the support and care you need. Symptoms of diabetes vary from person to person, but as we mentioned earlier, common signs include excessive thirst, frequent urination, especially at night, extreme hunger, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision, This includes slow wound healing. Cuts, numbness or tingling in hands and feet. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is essential to consult your health care provider for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan for diabetes management.

9:57 – Mila Clark
Managing symptoms is important. It’s like getting behind the wheel and navigating your own journey. And if you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I’m all about small changes that have a big impact. So incorporating more plants into your diet, balancing fat, fiber and protein, and staying active are some small steps you can take to make a big difference in your blood sugar readings. It’s a method. I really think it’s important to have a plan and understand what’s going on with your body.

10:33 – Mila Clark
It can be a game changer, and you may feel very empowered to get the answers you deserve. Now, let’s talk about diabetes testing. It’s so important to be proactive about our health, and getting tested is an important step. These tests can help you get a clear picture of your blood sugar levels and overall health, and can also help you develop an appropriate treatment plan. Diagnosis of diabetes therefore usually involves a blood test that measures the level of glucose in the bloodstream.

11:05 – Mila Clark
Depending on the results, additional tests may be required to confirm the diagnosis, like my LADA diagnosis. I had a high A1C, but I hadn’t taken an antibody test. If I had done that, it probably would have looked a little different. Therefore, it is very important to check and it will help you determine the type of diabetes you have. These tests may include an oral glucose tolerance test or a glycated hemoglobin A1C test. we all know very well. If your A1C test suggests you may have diabetes, I think it’s either a 3-month average of your blood sugar levels, or an antibody test like the one I took to confirm the diagnosis of LAVA.

11:46 – Mila Clark
It’s important to know that early detection and treatment of diabetes can prevent or delay serious complications such as heart disease, nerve damage, kidney disease, and vision loss. That’s why it’s important to get tested and tested regularly if you have diabetes risk factors or symptoms. Well, that concludes today’s episode on understanding diabetes, the causes of diabetes. We hope this provides more clarity and a better understanding of diabetes as a whole.

12:18 – Mila Clark
I think the important point here, and in everything I say, is that knowledge is power. Therefore, if you suspect you have diabetes or are concerned about your risk of developing diabetes, talk to your health care provider. It’s the first step to understanding where you are. And asking for support is a sign of health and a sign of strength. It’s not a sign of weakness. That’s not a sign that you’re doing anything wrong. So you are not alone on this journey. And I really appreciate you listening to her Diabestie story.
