    Correct Answer
    A. 3
    Explanation
    There are three types of diabetes. This includes type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body does not produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition where the body becomes resistant to insulin or does not produce enough insulin. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy and usually goes away after giving birth.

    Diabetes is a deficiency or excess of

    • A.

      Haemoglobin

    • B.

      Blood glucose levels

    • C.

      Protein levels

    • D.

      Blood plasma

    Correct Answer
    B. Blood glucose levels
    Explanation
    Diabetes is a condition characterized by abnormal blood glucose levels. It can occur when the body either doesn't produce enough insulin or cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that helps regulate blood glucose levels. When there is a deficiency or excess of blood glucose levels, it can lead to various symptoms and complications associated with diabetes. Therefore, the correct answer is blood glucose levels.

    The hormone associated with diabetes is

    • A.

      Oestrogen

    • B.

      Testosterone

    • C.

      Insulin

    • D.

      Haemoglobin

    Correct Answer
    C. Insulin
    Explanation
    Insulin is the correct answer because it is the hormone associated with diabetes. Diabetes is a condition characterized by high blood sugar levels, and insulin is responsible for regulating blood sugar levels in the body. In individuals with diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or it does not effectively use the insulin it produces, leading to elevated blood sugar levels. Therefore, insulin plays a crucial role in the development and management of diabetes.

    Which organ is associated with diabetes?

    • A.

      Kidney

    • B.

      Liver

    • C.

      Skin

    • D.

      Pancreas

    Correct Answer
    D. Pancreas
    Explanation
    The pancreas is associated with diabetes because it produces insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. In people with diabetes, the pancreas either does not produce enough insulin (Type 1 diabetes) or the body does not effectively use the insulin produced (Type 2 diabetes). Insulin helps to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells, where it is used for energy. Without sufficient insulin, glucose builds up in the bloodstream, leading to high blood sugar levels and the symptoms associated with diabetes.

    Diabetes occurs when there is little or no

    • A.

      Plasma

    • B.

      Blood

    • C.

      Insulin

    • D.

      Glucose

    Correct Answer
    C. Insulin
    Explanation
    Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps regulate blood sugar levels. In diabetes, there is either a lack of insulin production or the body's cells are not able to effectively use the insulin that is produced. This leads to high levels of glucose in the blood, as insulin is responsible for transporting glucose into the cells for energy. Therefore, the correct answer is insulin.

    • D.

      Dropped

    Correct Answer
    A. Managed
    Explanation
    Diabetes cannot be cured or removed completely, but it can be managed through various lifestyle changes, medication, and regular monitoring of blood sugar levels. Managing diabetes involves maintaining a healthy diet, engaging in regular physical activity, taking prescribed medications, and monitoring blood sugar levels. By effectively managing diabetes, individuals can keep their blood sugar levels within a target range and prevent or delay complications associated with the condition.

    Correct Answer
    D. Hyperglycemia
    Explanation
    Hyperglycemia refers to high blood sugar levels in the body. It occurs when the body is unable to produce enough insulin or properly use the insulin it produces. This can be caused by various factors such as diabetes, certain medications, stress, and unhealthy lifestyle choices. Hyperglycemia can lead to symptoms such as increased thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, and blurred vision. If left untreated, it can cause serious complications and damage to organs and blood vessels. Therefore, hyperglycemia is the correct term to describe high blood sugar levels.

    C. Hypoglycemia
    Explanation
    Hypoglycemia is the correct answer because it refers to low blood sugar levels in the body. This condition occurs when the glucose levels in the blood drop below normal, causing symptoms such as dizziness, confusion, and weakness. Insufficient, deficiency, and infection are not appropriate terms to describe low blood sugar levels.

This condition typically occurs around the 24th to 28th week of pregnancy and usually resolves after childbirth. Therefore, the correct answer is pregnant women.
