>>KIM HANCHETTE: ABSOLUTELY.
GESTATIONAL DIABETES IS DIABETES THAT DEVELOPS WHEN A PERSON IS
PREGNANT. AND THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT GESTATIONAL DIABETES IS THAT
AFTER THE BABY IS BORN, IN MOST CASES THAT DIABETES DOES GO AWAY
THEN. IT WAS A CONDITION THAT WAS BROUGHT UPON DUE TO THE
PREGNANCY. SO MOST WOMEN WITH GESTATIONAL DIABETES CAN BE TREAT THAT DIABETES
WHILE PREGNANT WITH DIETARY CHANGES. SOME OF THEM DO REQUIRE INSULIN,
BUT MOST CAN DO IT WITH CHANGES IN NUTRITION. TYPE 1 DIABETES IS ONLY ABOUT
10% OF ALL DIABETES, AND THAT IS THE ONE THAT SOME PEOPLE MIGHT
CALL IT THE MORE SEVERE DIABETES. BUT, THAT REALLY IS A MISNOMER,
BECAUSE ALL DIABETES, AS ALL OF US HERE CAN TELL YOU IS VERY
SERIOUS DIABETES, AND CAN BE VERY SEVERE IF YOU DON’T MANAGE
IT. BUT TYPE 1 IS THE ONE WHERE WHEN PEOPLE ARE DIAGNOSED, THEY GET
SICK VERY QUICKLY, AND THEY SOMETIMES END UP IN THE HOSPITAL
WITH A CONDITION CALLED DIABETIC KITOACIDOSIS BECAUSE THEIR BLOOD
SUGAR GOES UP VERY RAPIDLY BECAUSE THEY ARE COMPLETELY
LACKING INSULIN. NOW TYPE 2 DIABETES, ABOUT 90% OF ALL DIABETES,
IS AGAIN MORE WHERE YOUR BODY ISN’T UTILIZING THE INSULIN
THAT YOU DO MAKE. AND BECAUSE THAT COMES ON SO SLOWLY, WE’RE NOW
ACTUALLY DIAGNOSING PEOPLE WITH PREDIABETES TO TRY
AND CATCH THAT EARLY, IN THE EARLY PREDIABETES NUMBERS STAGES WITH
THE BLOOD SUGAR SO YOU COULD POTENTIALLY EITHER PUT OFF THE
ONSET OF DIABETES OR POTENTIALLY NOT DEVELOP DIABETES.
