Hello Scratchers!I want to tell you that I have Type 1 Diabetes.Type 1 Diabetes is where your pancreas produces little or no insulin.Insulin allows sugar (glucose) to enter the cells to produse energy.(Its like a key and a door:There is no key (insulin) to let the sugar through the door) And there is Lows and Highs too.So to see if you are low or high you must prick your finger.Now if you are low there you need sugar. If you are under thirty you could pass out(Luckily I have never passed out)And then you could go high which you need insulin.If you go really high you could have health problems.Kids from 2-7 usually is the age you get Type 1 Diabetes but it could happen when you are a adult.
Some symtoms (That I noticed) was:
*going to the bathroom more often
*Wetting the bed but previosly didnt
*Unintended weight loss(You could see my ribs :( )
Something that make the risk higher having someone in the family have type one diabetes.
Sadly they still havent found a cure.
You can add projects about Type 1 diabetes.Thx for reading this.
