The 30-minute duration is considered a minimum guideline by various health organizations, such as the American Heart Association.

    What is type I diabetes?

      The pancreas cannot produce insulin

    • B.

      The pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body does not use the insulin effectively

    • C.

      Occurs during pregnancy and is temporarily experienced by a pregnant woman

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The pancreas cannot produce insulin
    Explanation
    Type I diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, is a condition in which the pancreas is unable to produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels in the body. Without insulin, the body cannot properly convert glucose into energy, leading to high blood sugar levels. Unlike Type II diabetes, which can be caused by a combination of factors including insufficient insulin production and ineffective insulin use, Type I diabetes is solely characterized by the inability of the pancreas to produce insulin.
