Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition that occurs when the pancreas makes very little or no insulin, the hormone responsible for transporting glucose (sugar) to cells for energy. This leaves too much sugar in the blood, which has both short and long term affects on overall health. Type 1 usually begins in children but can happen any time, with symptoms including thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, and blurred vision. There is no cure, but there is management of symptoms through monitoring, insulin and medication, diet, and exercise.

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that occurs when there is too little insulin, the hormone that helps glucose (sugar) get to cells for energy, or when the body resists the absorption of insulin. Type 2 generally affects adults, though more children are being affected seemingly due to lifestyle. Symptoms, like fatigue, weight loss, extreme thirst and hunger can sometimes be managed with diet and exercise, as obesity and inactivity seem to be risk factors.

Varicose veins are abnormal, damaged veins that can occur anywhere on the body but are mostly present close to the skin on the legs, appearing as blue or purple clusters. Sometimes, in the case of symptoms like painful standing and walking, or the presence of other conditions, medical treatment is necessary.
