    What Is Diabetes Home Care?

    Diabetes is a long-lasting health condition that causes blood sugar (glucose) levels to become too high. This happens when your body can’t produce the sufficient amount of insulin needed. Around 3.9 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes in the UK.

    At Esteem, one of our three core values is promoting good nutrition, which is such an essential part of supporting people with diabetes.

    Types of Diabetes

    Type 1 diabetes – This often develops quickly; symptoms can arise over weeks or even days. It can develop at any age but is usually diagnosed between childhood and early adulthood. Type 1 occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin.

    Type 2 diabetes – This can develop slowly and is most common in people aged 45 and older.  Type 2 occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin or the insulin you produce can’t work effectively.

    Type 2 diabetes is more common than type 1 with 90% of adults that have been diagnosed with diabetes having type 2.
