Diabetes is a very scary disease that is unfortunately very common. This disease occurs when your blood glucose is too high. In other words when your blood sugar is too high. Your main source of energy is from blood glucose or blood sugar which comes from the food you eat! For this disease, insulin, which is a hormone made by the pancreas, helps blood sugars get into your cells to be used as energy. For people with diabetes, your body is not making or using insulin correctly, this is why diabetics take man made insulin to help control your blood sugar levels.

There many different types of diabetes but the most common are, type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes means your body does not make insulin. The cells in your pancreas are attacked by your immune system and destroys the cells to are used to make insulin. In order to stay alive, people with type 1 diabetes must take insulin every day! Type 1 is usually diagnosed in children and young adults. Sometimes it can appear at any age though.

Type 2 diabetes is similar to type 1 where your body does not make or use insulin well. This is the most common form of diabetes. This type of diabetes can be controlled by the food you consume as well as medication. You can develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even children can develop this disease. In most cases, type 2 diabetes often occur in middle age and older people.

Gestational diabetes is not as common as type 1 and type 2. This form of diabetes develops in some women when they are pregnant. In most cases, once the baby is born this type of diabetes goes away, but sometimes when diabetes is diagnosed during pregnancy its is actually type 2 diabetes that stays with them even after the baby is born.

There are other types of diabetes that are less common. Some of these less common types of diabetes are monogenic diabetes and cystic fibroses related diabetes. Monogenic diabetes is inherited by one or more parent. Cystic fibrosis related diabetes is a very unique type of diabetes that is commonly found in people with cystic fibrosis. If this disease is diagnosed and given the proper treatment early on, cystic fibrosis related diabetes can be successfully managed.

There are studies that show in 2015, 30.3 million Americans (9.4 % of the population) have diabetes, and every year 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes. Approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes and about 90-95 % of cases in adults are type 2. There are a lot of people walking around with diabetes, and don’t even know it! Of the 30.3 million of Americans diagnosed with diabetes, 23.1 million were diagnosed and 7.2 million were undiagnosed! This means 1 in 4 people didn’t know they had diabetes. Even 84.1 million Americans that were the age of 18 and older had prediabetes, when these studies were done in 2015. They are calling it a nationwide epidemic! One of the biggest reasons why this is an epidemic is because diabetes remains to be the 7th leading cause of death in the United States!


Not only is it important to know what type of diabetes you have and the proper nutrition and medication to keep your blood glucose levels under control, but it is also very important to keep up with physical activity as much as possible! Studies show in the united states every 17 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes and everyday 230 Americans with diabetes with suffer an amputation.  This of course will make it very difficult to keep up the daily physical activity, but whatever the case may be, there are many ways to find the right physical therapy for each individual.

In order to manage your blood sugars, you must closely manage what you choose to eat, how much you eat, and when you eat, as it is key to keeping all your levels in a healthy range that is recommended for you. So, lets re-cap now; by doing all these steps like managing your meals, physical therapy and closely watching your sugar levels with medicine, will help you keep your blood glucose levels, blood pressure and cholesterol in your target range, prevent or delay long term diabetic problems,  and will give you more energy and an overall good feeling about your health!

That’s where Healthy Noodle comes into the picture! When you are a diabetic you must watch your carbohydrates when eating, as well as your sugar intake. The reason you must be careful with your carb count is because your body turns those carbs into glucose, which in the end result makes your blood sugar levels rise. This is one big reason why people with diabetes don’t eat breads or pastas.
