Juvenile diabetes is commonly known as Type 1 diabetes and it is a syndrome which disrupts the metabolism functions and due to insulin deficiency, it causes extremely high levels of glucose in the blood which the body is unable to digest. This can be quite harmful.
Undue thirst, urination and hunger are the three prime symptoms of this kind of diabetes. Some other symptoms includes frequent aggravation, nausea and vomiting, constant exhaustion and problems with the eyesight. A person with type 1 diabetes is also prone to loosing weight, even though they tend to eat excessively.
Unfortunately there is not a definite cure for this condition yet. However it is possible to ease some of the troubles the condition carries with itself and try to lower the amount of glucose in the blood.
Because this disease is caused by the lack of insulin is in the organism and the main things to do is supply the body with the right amount of the substance. This is usually done with an insulin injection, which one is required to inject several times a day all the while monitoring the glucose in the blood in order to make sure that the right balance is established. However, this can be quite a difficulty for children, so a new ways of inserting insulin is being introduced and that is by using a small pump which one has on him all the time.
Another important thing to have under control is the diet. Consuming too much food is not necessary, even though the body might give out different signals because of the disease, and it can only lead to increased levels of glucose in the blood. Also, it is important to make sure that the diet is healthy, which means a minimal amount of junk food and sweets. It is very unfortunate for children to be deprived of their favorite food in such a way but the right attitude from the parents can really make a difference and make things easier for them.
Aside from a healthy diet regular exercise is also a way to clear up the unwanted blood sugar,as well as all the harmful substances which get into the body through unhealthy food.
Finally, even though having juvenile diabetes requires a lot of sacrifice and discipline, it does not have to be the worst thing in the world if one does not let it be, particularly since there are not that many things that one has to give up. And besides this traits one develops while dealing with juvenile diabetes are not at all bad ones to have.
