Affect of Insulin on Type 1 Diabetes

Before the advent of insulin, type 1 diabetes complication was fatal. Now with the advent of insulin and other cures those people with type 1 diabetes can live an elongated and fulfilling life.

Consequences and Nature of Diabetics

In western countries if a person's diabetes complication is not diagnosed properly, it leads them to cause blindness and renal disease. When comparing with people with specific oral and gynecological infections, diabetics are more sensitive due to the bacteria involved in these infections like “sugar”.

The feet of a diabetic person are particularly delicate and have a tendency to cause problems. Wounds in diabetic people can cause abscesses, even gangrene; this then usually leads to ejection of the infected limbs.

Chronic hyperglycemia slowly damages the small blood vessels of the kidney and the eyes in addition to the nerves over a period of time especially if the person's diabetic condition is not well looked after. This ultimately causes over the years a failing of these particular organs.

Blockage of Blood Vessels and Permanent Sugar Excess

In a person with diabetes complication, certain blood vessels can become blocked, therefore specific parts of the diabetic person's body such as the heart and lungs etc do not receive an adequate blood supply. This leads to the death of the person. Also as stated before, an enduring sugar excess in the blood generates complications such as blindness, renal deficiency and neuropathy of the legs.

Hyperglycemia and Hypopglycemia

Severe type 1 diabetes complication is usually fainting or coma caused by hyperglycemia. This also occurs when the person is suffering from hypoglycemia; both conditions in that order are due to insulin not injected or an insufficient dosage being given. Sometimes it is complex to tell whether a diabetic person is hyperglycemic or hypoglycemic.

One brilliant method of determining which state they are in is to scent their breath. If the person is in a hyperglycemic condition, it will smell very sweet. The burning of the ketones as a fuel in the body is the cause of this.

Acidic Ketosis

Acidic ketosis is a diabetes complication which occurs when the body can’t utilize glucose as fuel anymore. (Sugar can not go through the cells because of an insulin absence). The cells are then attacked, causing unusually massive degradation in ketones which are poisonous waste for the human body. If not treated, it evolves into a coma and can cause untimely death.
