This is Timmy, throughout his teenage life has not been very healthy. He has been eating improperly and not been getting daily exercise.
As Timmy has gotten older now in his 30's he has developed type 1 diabetes from his eating habits.
The doctor is explaining to Tim how because of diabetes it will effect his circulatory, nervous, immune system so his body cant properly function now.
Diabetes effects your immune system by affecting the production of insulin, and insulin is what turns glucose the energy for the body. Pancreas which create insulin are attacked by the immune system, this restricts the production of sugar energy. This makes a person like Tim extremely thirsty due to a deficiency in sugar make the circulatory walls in the system fatty restricting blood flow and causing high blood pressure. This also causes heart problems as it grows weaker as well.
The nervous system gets affected ass well. Nephropathy is when the nerves in the nervous system get damaged. This weakens your ability to fell heat, pain, and cold. This make is risky for you to get hurt and longer for wounds to heal. Since all of these is can happen your body tries to compensate for homeostasis by causing a bigger in take of sugar for the immune and circulatory system while there is no compensation for the nervous sytem.
Overall the body stays the same but if you don't help your body it can get worse. To prevent and even help diabetes you should eat a healthy balanced meal and get normal exercise. This cause the extra fat build up to unclog the blood vessels. A body can return to normal depending on the process of how often do you eat a balanced meal and do you exercise often? These two actors overall decide if your body maintains homeostasis.
