Diabetes

“Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease that affects how your body turns food into energy. It is also known as diabetes mellitus.”

Most of the food that we eat turns into sugar (glucose) and is then released into the bloodstream. Once the sugar level rises, your pancreas releases insulin. Insulin is a key hormone that regulates blood sugar by carrying it to your body cells to use as energy. People who have diabetes either don't make enough insulin or are unable to use the insulin effectively.

Types of Diabetes

  • Type 1 Diabetes: It is considered an autoimmune disease, where the body attacks itself. The reasons for this effect are still not known. In Type 1 diabetes immune system attacks the pancreas's cells that make insulin. This is a rare disease, and only 5-10% of people have it.
  • Type 2 Diabetes:It occurs when your body’s cells become resistant to insulin. Eventually, your body may not produce enough insulin. The resistance to insulin causes sugar to build up in your bloodstream.
  • Prediabetes:It is the earlier stage of diabetes where your blood sugar level is higher than normal levels. However, not high enough to for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Although, the condition puts you at risk for type 2 diabetes.
  • Gestational Diabetes:It develops during pregnancy, even if you never had diabetes. Insulin-blocking hormones produced by the placenta cause the condition. Gestational diabetes goes away when the baby is born. However, it puts the women and their babies at a higher risk for health problems.
