Diabetes affects millions of Americans, but there’s still a lot of misconceptions out there about this disease. Here, Dr. Lori Noble from Penn Medicine clears up what’s fact and what’s fiction when it comes to diabetes. Diabetes is when your body is unable to regulate its own blood sugar and it comes in two forms: • Type 1: Cells that make insulin are mistake and destroyed by the immune system. This disease is believed to be caused by genetics and certain environmental factors. There’s no way to prevent it. • Type 2: More common in people who are overweight, inactive, or eat a poor diet But what’s fact and what’s fiction when it comes to diabetes? Is being overweight a guarantee that you will eventually develop diabetes? Does everyone with diabetes REALLY have to take insulin all the time? And if you do have diabetes, does that mean saying goodbye to all of your favorite foods? Dr. Noble sets the record straight on diabetes.
