If you have diabetes, it will be important to work with your local family physician to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, prevent diabetes-related complications such as foot problems and manage medications including insulin. A local family physician can also refer you to other healthcare providers such as an endocrinologist and a registered dietitian.

There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2 diabetes. If you have type 1 diabetes, your body doesn’t produce insulin. Insulin is secreted by the pancreas when food is absorbed, so as food accumulates in the blood in someone with type 1 diabetes, sugar levels get too high.

Type 1 Diabetes Symptoms

Often, when people are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, they have lost weight, as much of the food they eat ends up in urine, not in their cells. Other type 1 diabetes symptoms include:

• Frequent urination 
• Increased thirst 
• Fatigue 
• Blurred vision
