What is Diabetes?

The main source of energy for our body is blood glucose, which we get from the food we eat. This glucose is transported to all the cells of the body through a hormone called insulin, which is produced by the pancreas. When pancreas fails to produce enough insulin or the body is unable to use insulin efficiently, sugar levels increase in blood causing diabetes.

There are 3 types of diabetes:

  1. Type 1 diabetes occurs when cells of pancreas (islets of Langerhans) stop producing insulin, due to autoimmune disorder.
  2. Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90% of all diabetes. It occurs when insulin becomes insufficient or the body becomes resistant to insulin.
  3. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy due to hormonal changes.

Type 2 diabetes most occurs in middle-aged and older people because of the unhealthy lifestyle and wrong eating habits.

Diabetes insipidus is not related to diabetes mellitus. It is a rare condition in which the kidneys are unable to retain water. This results in excess urination and excessive thirst, which are also the symptoms of diabetes mellitus.

Common symptoms of diabetes

  • Tingling or numbness in hands and feet
  • Frequent urination
  • Feeling tired
  • Excess thirst and hunger
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Slow healing wounds
  • Skin dryness and itching
  • Blurred vision

Risk factors of diabetes

  • Obesity – according to research studies obesity is a major risk factor for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. The more the fatty tissue in body, the more resistant cells become to insulin
  • Sedentary lifestyle – regular physical activity helps us maintain weight, use up glucose as energy and makes cells more sensitive to insulin
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – common condition in which women suffer from irregular periods, obesity, excess hair growth and obesity
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Age
  • Family history
  • High triglyceride levels
  • Unhealthy eating habits

Complications of diabetes

Over a period of time, high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels and nerves, leading to serious complications which can be of two types:

  • Microvascular complications is due to damage of small blood vessels resulting in retinopathy (eye damage leading to blindness), nephropathy (kidney damage leading to renal failure), neuropathy (nerve damage) and diabetic foot disorders.
  • Macrovascular complications is due to damage of big blood vessels which leads to atherosclerosis which is narrowing of arteries. This results in decreased blood flow to heart muscles causing heart attack, or to brain causing stroke or to extremities leading to numbness, burning sensation and acute pain.
