to our diabetes web site. On this site you will learn all
about diabetes type 1. Diabetes type one is a disease when
your pancreas ( a little organ close to your stomach)
stops producing insulin. Insulin is a liquid substance
that helps absorb your blood sugar. Blood sugar is the sugar
that is in your blood, it comes from the food that you eat.
Everything you eat turns into sugar...from starch to fruit it
all turns into sugar! When you have diabetes you have to be on
a strict diet...NO MORE SUGAR!! Just kidding, you are allowed
to have sugar, just not a lot of it. You are are allowed to have
up to two sugar choices a day (which is not a lot). The normal
blood sugar is between four and seven. If your blood sugar is
too high it can cause you to have problems when you are older,
like poor eye sight, bad hearing and even not being able to
walk!! But if your blood sugar is to low it can cause you to
lose brain cells (that never grow back) and to have seizures.

sugars and even the symptoms of diabetes type one!!
