What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a life-long condition caused by a lack of insulin; an essential hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin helps turn the food we eat into energy in the form of glucose, also known as blood sugar.

For diabetics, their pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to enable all of the sugar in blood to be turned into energy used by the body’s cells. Therefore leading to a build-up of sugar in the blood, referred to high blood sugar levels.

If not managed correctly, diabetes can lead to blindness, kidney failure, heart attack, stroke or issues with lower limbs.

Patient Information

There are two types of diabetes; Type 1 and Type 2.

Type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes usually occurs in childhood or in early adult life and requires daily insulin injections. According to the World Health Organisation, its cause or way to prevent it are unknown.

Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes develops in adulthood and can often be prevented or managed through diet and exercise. However, in most cases, the management of the condition requires insulin injections.

While there are no official figures for those living with diabetes in Ireland, it is estimated that 6% of the population are diabetic in 2022 . Globally, the figure is estimated at 10.5% of the adult population .

The prevalence of the disease is on the increase and based on current rates, it is expected to increase by between 40% to 60% over the next 20 years. Given these stark predictions, it is more important than ever that people understand how to manage their diabetes effectively and safely.
