NUTR 2360 Study Guide for Exam 2 – Spring 2016 (This is not an all-­‐inclusive study guide, and this is not intended to be your only method of studying. Study your book, lecture slides and notes taken during class, and use this study guide as a checkpoint to find out which areas you need to study further. ) Carbohydrates Understand the differences between type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. What are the causes Treatments Consequences -­‐Type 1 diabetes: NO insulin is produced or released. *causes: Genetic component: non Hispanics whites are at greater risk. Environmental links: born to mom with gestational diabetes. Breastfeeding decreases risk of T1DM. *treatments: control blood sugar (exogenous insulin required.) carbohydrate counting. -­‐Type 2 diabetes: peripheral cells become resistant to insulin.
