Diabetes is a disorder of assimilation, use and storage of sugars brought by the diet. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both.
There are mainly two types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes, which affects about 6% of diabetics and type 2 diabetes affects 92% of diabetics.
Symptoms of diabetes are usually intense thirst, abundant urine, rapid weight loss. This diabetes results from the disappearance of the beta cells of the pancreas causing a total deficiency in insulin.
Causes of Diabetes
Doctors believe the type 1 diabetes is caused by environmental factors and genes, such as viruses, that might trigger the disease. Type 1 diabetes occurs when your immune system, the body’s system for fighting infection, attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. The common type 2 diabetes is caused mainly by genetic disposition and lifestyle.
