Diabetes Mellitus: Types, Risk factors, Symptoms, Preventive measures and Healthgarde Treatment For Diabetes

These are a group of diseases in which the body is unable to use up glucose appropriately.

Glucose is the breakdown product of carbohydrates. It is a major source of fuel in the body. It helps to power every body tissue and cell including the brain, muscles, and other tissues. 

A hormone called insulin, produced in the beta cells of the pancreas helps to aid glucose absorption in the body tissues.

So, diabetes leads to an increased level of glucose in the blood and a decreased utilization of the same by the body.
This abnormal blood glucose level and utilization cause serious health problems.

1) Type 1 Diabetes:

It was initially referred to as insulin-dependent or juvenile-onset diabetes.

It usually results from the destruction of the beta cells of the pancreatic islet by the body's immune cells(autoimmunity). These beta cells are the cells that produce insulin. So, their destruction leads to decreased or zero insulin production and therefore decreased glucose use by the body (hence high blood glucose).

It is more common in children and adolescents and progresses fast.

2) Type 2 Diabetes:

This type of diabetes results from the resistance of the body cells to insulin action and the inability of the pancreas to overcome this by producing more insulin. Here, unlike in type 1 diabetes, the blood insulin level is usually high or normal. Obesity is an important cause of insulin resistance.

3) Gestational Diabetes:

Diabetes or glucose intolerance that started or was diagnosed during pregnancy is called gestational diabetes.
It starts mostly in late pregnancy.
It is believed to be caused by certain pregnancy hormones that increase the body's resistance to insulin.
This type of diabetes resolves after pregnancy in most women.
