Blood sugar issues

Blood sugar issues caused by diabetes

Though lifestyle factors cause blood sugar shifts, the most common cause of blood sugar issues is diabetes.
The pancreas releases insulin and glucagon (shown here in purple and green) to control blood sugar levels.

There are several types of diabetes, which are described here:

Type 1 diabetes[a child having blood glucose measured]

Type 1 diabetes may be referred to as juvenile diabetes because it usually develops during childhood.

Type 1 diabetes causes the body's immune cells to attack some of the insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas.

People with type 1 diabetes often experience very high blood sugar. Their low insulin levels, however, mean that they cannot use much of the glucose in their blood.

Type 1 diabetes is a type of autoimmune condition, which means that it causes the body to attack itself. It often develops in childhood, and is sometimes called juvenile diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes, and is linked to lifestyle issues such as being overweight.

People with type 2 diabetes have insulin resistance. This means that insulin doesn't work as well to allow the cells access to glucose.
