Were you looking for information about Diabetes? Diebetes is a common misspelling of diabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic condition in which the body cannot properly convert food into energy. There are three main types: type 1, type 2, and gestational. Type 1 diabetes, formerly known as juvenile diabetes, is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers, and young adults. Type 2 is the most common type of diabetes. Formerly called adult-onset diabetes, this type can develop at any age -- even during childhood. Gestational diabetes develops in some women during the late stages of pregnancy.
Possible symptoms can include fatigue, nausea, and excessive thirst. Over time, the high blood glucose levels caused by this condition can lead to several health problems and complications, such as nerve damage and problems with the nerves, eyes, and kidneys.
Treating diabetes involves testing blood glucose regularly, being physically active, and following a healthy food plan, among other things. If lifestyle changes alone aren't enough to help manage your condition, or if you have type 1 diabetes, medications are often prescribed.
