Diabetes - Introduction
Diabetes is a condition in which your blood glucose level (or blood sugar) is too high. Your blood always has and requires some glucose in it as your body needs glucose for energy to keep it functioning. However, too much glucose in the blood is not good for your health. This condition of high glucose arises due to inability of the body  either to produce enough insulin or use it.

Glucose comes from the food you eat and the blood carries the glucose to all the cells of your body. Insulin is a hormone that is generated and released to blood by pancreas. Insulin helps the glucose in the blood to be carried to cells of your body. If pancreas doesn't make enough insulin or body doesn't use the insulin, glucose can not get into the cells causing glucose the blood levels too high.

The symptoms of diabetes: A patient with diabetes is more likely to have one or more of the following symptoms.
  • Excessive thirst
  • Excessive hunger and tiredness
  • Frequent urinations
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Having sores that heal slowly
  • Irritability
  • Having blurry eyesight 
Type 1 Diabetes     Top
In Type 1 diabetes which used to called insulin dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes, the beta cells of pancreas no longer make insulin because the body's immune system has attacked and destroyed them. The conventional treatment for Type 1 diabetes includes to take insulin shots besides making wise food choices, exercising regularly, taking aspirin and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol. Type 1 diabetes is usually first diagnosed in children and teenagers.

Type 2 Diabetes     Top
Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes of non-insulin dependent diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. In type2 diabetes, either pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin or the cells ignore them. It causes your cells starve for energy and over time, high blood glucose levels may hurt eyes, nerves, heart or kidneys. Type 2 diabetes may occur in people of all ages. The conventional treatment for Type 2 diabetes includes to take diabetes medicines besides making wise food choices, exercising regularly, taking aspirin and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol. One of the underlying causes of Type 2 Diabetes is insulin resistance, a condition of the body in which the cells throughout the body become resistant to the insulin produced by pancreas.

Gestational Diabetes     Top
Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that only pregnant women get during the late stages of pregnancy. In fact, the word gestational means pregnant. If a woman gets high blood sugar when she's pregnant, but she never had high blood sugar before, she has gestational diabetes. This form of diabetes usually goes away after the baby is born. But, a woman who has had it is more likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life. Gestational diabetes is caused by the hormones of pregnancy or a shortage of insulin.
