Diabetes UK – animation about diabetes and the body

There are two main types of diabetes, known as Type 1 and Type 2. Both types of diabetes are lifelong health conditions. There are 3.2 million people diagnos…


  1. I've been type 1 for 15 years now, and whenever someone's actually asked me what's happening inside of me I sort of go 'well, it's difficult to explain', because I haven't really understood myself. Whenever I've asked a nurse to explain what's actually happening I always came away feeling like they might as well have spoken in another language. I don't know if it's because you animated it or because you spoke simply and clearly, but whatever it was it's really simplified it for me. Thank you.

  2. No one watching this video would understand from an evolutionary perspective refined carbohydrates (= glucose) are NOT the preferred fuel for human metabolism; dietary fat is Carbohydrate intake determines your body’s fat ratio, processed grains and sugars (particularly fructose) are responsible for the skyrocketing obesity/ diabetes rates. Carbs should be only 20% of diet, fats 50-70%. Recommending carbohydrates to those with faulty glucose metabolism = medical negligence.

  3. I am told my glucose levels are high, but my urine is consistently negative for any glucose. I am also overweight, and completely unable to reduce! So I am stuck.

  4. Possible you have higher than average renal threshold so glucose does not appear in urine until blood glucose levels are very high say above 160–180 mg/dl. It's also possible it's a false negative test result. False negatives may happen when Specific gravity is elevated, or in uricosuria (uric acid in urine) where you are taking something such as ascorbic acid (vitamin C) to lower body Uric acid.levels.

  5. @I am also overweight, and completely unable to reduce! Have you tried low carbohydrate high fat? They seem to work best, see article "23 Studies on Low-Carb and Low-Fat Diets – Time to Retire The Fad" KrisGunners AuthorityNutrition. and "13 Nutrition Lies That Made The World Sick And Fat" See also "WHEATBELLY," and "Mark'sDailyApple." "A Metabolic Paradigm Shift, or Why Fat is the Preferred Fuel for Human Metabolism"

  6. Just started my Nutrition course. Very interesting so far. Found a nice video explaining what Diabetes is and the difference between the two types of this disease.

  7. Informing!

  8. This video helps take the mystery out of diabetes
