Diabetes research with Kingston

This is the research that our groups Muri Paroa and Toki, in Room 20, have been working on about diabetes for the past week. Thanks to our awesome Teacher Mrs Squires.

There are many consequences to having Diabetes. These include stroke, dehydration, blindness, and many more. They can become a lot worse if not treated immediately and can lead to death. There are two different types of Diabetes, type one and two. You can only get type one if  you are born with it, type  is a different story. It can be passed down from the family, this is called a genetic condition.

Dehydration is caused by an overflow of glucose and insulin, building up in the blood. Because the body cells are not responding to the insulin and absorbing the glucose, it builds up in the blood.   So the body takes  water from the blood cells to try flush the glucose and insulin out and thats why you become thirsty.

To avoid serious complications, people with diabetes need to keep their blood sugar level at an average level. A good diet, and exercise will help to control the amount of sugar that goes in the Blood stream. If the sugar level is too low then that can cause tiredness *quick note* [ the glucose is like an energy source so if there’s not enough then you're not getting that much energy.

Constellations ?

Well you might just ask what are constellations. I will try my best to explain what constellations are. “So where were we”, oh yes kick back and enjoy my story. If you look into the sky in the night, there will be little stars and they a called constellations. Some of them look like connect the dots. Behind the dots are some mythical gods. Like Aphrodite, Hermes , Zeus and many more. Most people say back before all of us were born, the stars were a big help to some adventurist. Like chief Kupe and his men. They were lead to New Zealand by the constellations in the skies. I think that constellations a just beautiful. They are a big help and may I add just to make sure I that I said beautiful they are beautiful.
