Which of the following tables correctly summarizes the symptoms of diabetes and potential treatments?

Diabetes is a disease resulting from the imbalance of glucose in the body. Insulin is the major hormone involved in diabetes, so let’s discuss that in some detail.

When we eat food, a lot of it is broken down during digestion into a simple sugar called glucose. This glucose is very important and can be used by many cells, such as muscle cells, for energy. These cells can’t absorb glucose unless a special hormone called insulin is present. Insulin is made by our pancreas.

When glucose levels rise in the blood after eating food, the pancreas can detect this and produce insulin. So now insulin can help our cells absorb glucose so they can use it for energy. In a disease called diabetes, the pancreas has trouble producing insulin. Without enough insulin, the cells can’t take up glucose, so they can’t meet their energy requirements.

Diabetes has different symptoms and treatments. Some of the symptoms of diabetes include tiredness, frequent thirst, and frequent urination. And some of the treatments include insulin injections, to replace the low insulin levels, and a controlled diet.

Therefore, the option that correctly summarizes the symptoms of diabetes and its treatments is given by answer choice (A).
