Diabetes on Insulin Pump
Do you have excessive thirst, frequent urination, excessive eating, blurry vision, tingling in the toes?
You may have diabetes, there are two major classes of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. People with Type 1 diabetes are not able to make insulin from the islet of langerhans cells in their pancreas. They need an external source of insulin. People with Type 2 diabetes are able to make their own insulin, however they have insulin resistance where their body cells are unable to make adequate use of insulin, both groups have high blood sugar.
