Diabetes has almost become an epidemic in today’s world. Diabetes is a disorder that is caused by excessive sugar in the blood. Whatever sugar we take is generally broken down into simple sugar called ‘glucose’ in our body. This happens when the body does not produce enough insulin to process the ingested carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Types of Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes
Diabetes type 1:
The body does not produce insulin at all. Also called early onset or juvenile diabetes, it requires the person to inject insulin throughout his/her life. People suffering from this types of diabetes are also very prone to ketoacidosis. The cause is not certain and could be genetic, viral, or multi factorial.
Diabetes type 2.
Individuals, who carry extra weight, particularly in their belly, are more inclined to develop diabetes simply because the fats within their tissues will cause an imbalance of blood insulin within the body. Individuals diagnosed to have diabetes would definitely agree with the fact that it’s a frightening and life altering event. Individuals who deal with Type 2 diabetes usually believe they have no option but to taking medications for the remainder of their lives.
Gestational diabetes risk factors include a family history of diabetes, increased maternal age, and obesity. While the symptoms of gestational diabetes usually disappear after the birth, there are significant risks to both the mother and child. The mother is at a higher risk of developing type-2 diabetes at a later time and the child is at a higher risk of being obese or developing diabetes later in life.
