Getting Social Security Benefits for Your Diabetes
Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.
There are two major types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. Type results from the body's failure to produce insulin. Type 2 results from insulin resistance (a condition in which the body fails to properly use insulin), combined with relative insulin deficiency.
Symptoms of Diabetes include frequent urination, excessive thirst, extreme hunger, unusual weight loss, increased fatigue, irritability, and blurry vision. To learn more about Diabetes, see the American Diabetes Association website at www.diabetes.org.
There are 20.8 million children and adults in the United States , or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 14.6 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 6.2 million people (or nearly one-third) are unaware that they have the disease.
