GS-85 Blood Sugar

Another blessing in GS-85 Blood Sugar Review disguise - we have learned a lot. I now read the labels on food products, and actually understand what I'm reading! I also know the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Before, I always thought this was the same disease, but it is most definitely not! The biggest difference between the two types is that type 2, generally, is caused by a sedentary, and unhealthy lifestyle. Whereas type 1 is not caused by anything the child (or the mother) has done. You have to have a genetic predisposition. Another thing I have learned is patience, and lots of it! When Jacques seems to be naughty, I cannot be cross with him before I have tested his blood sugar. More often than not, something will be wrong - either a high blood glucose, or low. And I can most definitely not be angry with him for something he did wrong if his blood glucose is the cause. These were just some of the "blessings" this awful disease has brought us. I guess I'm living my life according to the philosophy that every cloud has a silver lining.Diabetes has become a big problem for a large percent of the population. Diabetes Mellitus or DM is an endocrine disorder which involves primarily the pancreas. It has become one of the most common diseases to affect American adults. Though this disorder is prevalent among the adult or geriatric individuals, diabetes in kids happens far more often than you would expect. Diabetes Mellitus is the medical term for this endocrine disorder which is characterized by a problem with blood sugar level and the amount of insulin produced by the body. The beta cells within the Islets of Langerhans are the primary source of insulin for the body. If anything goes wrong with the function of the beta cells of the pancreas it will render a disruption in the level of insulin in the blood. Diabetes in kids has the same pathophysiological characteristics as adult onset diabetes or Type II diabetes.
