We understand how managing diabetes can feel like going through a complicated maze. That’s why Manhattan Medical Arts is here as your trusted health partner, ensuring to deliver comprehensive care and support every step of the way.

Our expert endocrinologists are dedicated to help you manage your diabetes and make sure that you lead a healthy life, regardless of your diagnosis.

Understanding Diabetes

Diabetes can be explained as a chronic condition that affects how your body processes glucose, which is a type of sugar that serves as the main source of energy. Patients who suffer from diabetes, their bodies either do not produce enough insulin or aren’t able to utilize it effectively, which eventually leads to high levels of glucose in the bloodstream.

There are a few types of diabetes, and while each type has its own unique characteristics, the treatment goal remains the same – managing blood sugar levels and minimizing the risk of complications.

Types of diabetes include:

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the affected person’s immune system accidentally attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin in the pancreas. This results in minimized to no insulin production at all, increasing the blood sugar levels.

Type 1 diabetes is usually developed in childhood or adolescence. Patients who’re suffering from type 1 diabetes require lifelong insulin therapy to manage their blood sugar levels and prevent complications.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes, which accounts for the majority of cases. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to the effects of insulin or stops producing sufficient amounts of insulin required to maintain normal blood sugar levels.

Type 2 diabetes is often associated with lifestyle factors such as obesity, physical inactivity, and unhealthy diet choices. While it primarily affects adults, it is increasingly diagnosed in children and adolescents due to rising obesity rates.

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes develops during pregnancy and affects about 2-10% of pregnant women. It occurs when hormonal changes during pregnancy lead to insulin resistance, resulting in high blood sugar levels. Gestational diabetes usually develops around the 24th to 28th week of pregnancy and typically resolves after childbirth.

Women who have had gestational diabetes are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Managing gestational diabetes involves monitoring blood sugar levels, following a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, and in some cases, insulin therapy to maintain optimal health.
