Type 1 basically means your body does not make insulin at all or very little so all persons with this type must take insulin daily for the rest of their lives.
When autoimmunity (when the body’s own immune system attacks itself) tends to run in your direct blood family. This type of diabetes accounts for about 90 to 95% of all total Diabetes cases including 30 to 50% of Diabetes cases in Children. Gestational Diabetes is a another type of diabetes women sometimes get during pregnancy, but usually goes away after the birth of the baby. June 25, 2013 by Jessica Walters Leave a Comment Today’s post is a little technical plus I really felt like playing with my photo-editing apps! Although the exact causes of insulin resistance are still up for debate, scientists think the two biggest culprits are excess weight and physical inactivity. This type of diabetes accounts for about 5 to 10% of all Diabetes cases and is unavoidable. This usually happens in women that do not eat right or have a baby weighing 9 pounds or more.

We already know that excess weight can lead to insulin resistance but, according to lead study author, Dr.
Wang and colleagues set out to uncover that mechanism – looking for a way to explain the common denominator we mentioned earlier between diabetes and obesity. Type 1 Diabetes is usually found in children and young adults, but you can get this type at any age. Still, the most important thing to do is avoid all of this and maintain a healthy lifestyle as you are at high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
People with Type 1 Diabetes must control their glucose levels daily and can live a very normal productive life if they learn to control their blood sugar and eat right.
It is very important for Type 2 Diabetics to lose weight, exercise, eat healthy, stop smoking, not use illegal drugs, drink very little alcohol if at all only if their glucose is in control, lower their stress, and take their prescribed medications correctly so they can avoid serious complications and live a healthy, happy, and normal life.
Your baby will then process the glucose, possibly growing too large for a safe vaginal delivery, where a caesarian section (C-Section) might be necessary.
Be sure to follow up with your doctor 6 weeks after your delivery and every year after that to make sure you are healthy and diabetes free.

There is much evidence that shows these infants may have problems as they get older  and are at a much greater risk of developing diabetes themselves later in life. Remember that children are developing Type 2 Diabetes at a much younger age these days; sometimes as early as 5 years old!
If your doctor diagnoses you with gestational diabetes (GDM), you will be asked to follow a diet and monitor your glucose for up to 8 times a day. The diet is designed to give you the nutrition you need without overworking your body’s ability to process glucose.
The reason for this diet and monitoring is to prevent the glucose from crossing the placenta and moving into your baby’s circulation.
