Being diagnosed with diabetes can be scary. The good news though
is that it is a manageable condition. Armed with the right information
and the right products can help you comfortably live and prosper.The
Basics*
There are three main types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2 and
Gestational Diabetes. According to WebMd.com an estimated 7.8% of the
population or 23.6 million people suffer from diabetes. Diabetes is a
metabolic disorder in that a diabetic has difficulty producing the
proper amount of insulin to move glucose from the bloodstream into the
cells or the cells do not properly respond to the insulin.Type
1 Diabetes
Type 1 is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks
insulin-producing cells in the pancreas and destroys them. A person
with Type 1 diabetes must take insulin daily to live. Generally, Type 1
Diabetes develops in children and young adults, but it can appear at
any age.Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 is the more common type of diabetes and usually is associated
with older age, obesity, family history, physical inactivity, ethnicity
or a previous history of gestational diabetes. Usually when Type 2 is
diagnosed, the pancreas is producing enough insulin but the body cannot
use the insulin effectively.Gestational Diabetes
Gestational Diabetes develops during pregnancy. The medical
community has not come to a complete consensus, but many doctors believe
that the rise in hormones produced during pregnancy effects the body?s
ability to effectively process insulin. In most cases, gestational
diabetes goes away after the pregnancy is complete. Women who have had
gestational diabetes have an increased risk for developing Type 2
diabetes later in life.Monitoring Glucose Levels In Your
Blood
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you will need to carefully
monitor your blood glucose levels, or sugars. When you are diagnosed,
your doctor will discuss with you the proper blood glucose range for
your situation. Your doctor will also discuss how often you will need
to check your sugars.To check your sugars, you will use a meter,
testing strips and a lancet. Depending on the type of meter and lancet
system, you will test on your fingers or forearm. Since you may be
testing several times a day, you will need to pick the right system for
you. When evaluating your testing system you will need to think about
the following items:1. Is it easy to get a reading with the first
lancing?
2. How long does it take to see your results?
3. Is the lancing process as painless as possible?
4. Will my insurance cover the testing kit I want?Many people
suffer from diabetes. If you find the right glucose monitoring system,
you will be able to accurately and effectively manage your condition.*NOTE:

As a diabetic, it is extremely important that you monitor your
blood sugar levels regularly to keep your insulin within an acceptable
range. Have a fast, easy-to-use, painless blood glucose testing system,
like AccuCheck,
can help.AccuCheck is one of
the most widely use blood glocose testing systems and it is widely
recommended by doctors and accepted by most insurance plans.
