Diabetes is a condition where your blood glucose level is too high because of lack of insulin. Insulin is a hormone, made by our pancreas, that enables blood sugar to enter the cells in your body.
There are two main types of diabtets, type 1 and type 2. They are different conditions. If you have type 1, you can´t make any insulin at all, or very little (and type 2 means that the insulin either can´t work effectively, or you can´t produce enough of it).

METHODS OF HEALING
TRAINING!!!!!!! One of my biggest passions in life is training. Training is what gives me energy, what helps me to clear my head when I feel stressed, a great tool for handling my autoimmune diseases AND it makes me feel stronger, happier, healthier and more confident! I often feel tired, sometimes more, sometimes less, but training really gives me energy! Even if I feel tired before a workout, I always feel so much better after!
Of course it´s important with balance, and also let the body recover!
