In Their Own Words "What is diabetes?" #resvt

This weeks Purple Paw award goes to a scholar in Mrs. Darby's class for his research on diabetes. Over 25 million American's have diabetes.  The fastest rising category is school aged children.  In P.E. we learned about type 1 diabetes and how the pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin.  We also learned that insulin helps bring blood sugar to our muscles for energy.  Lastly we talked about type 2 diabetes, which has to do with the bodies ability to regulate blood sugar levels.  People with type 2 diabetes need to watch their diet carefully to keep their blood sugars levels at an optimum level.

Good work!!

Mr. G
