What is Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that affects the ability of your body to use blood glucose (blood sugar). Glucose is very important for your health as it provides energy to the cells (muscles and tissues) of your body and brain.

Diabetes causes high blood sugar in your body. The hormone called insulin moves sugar from the blood into your cells which can be used later for energy, when you are affected by diabetes your body either doesn’t use the insulin properly or can’t make enough insulin.

If not treated on time diabetes can cause serious complications such as kidney diseases, heart diseases, stroke, eye diseases, etc. It could lead to even death in severe conditions.

Causes and Symptoms of Diabetes

Causes:

The causes and risk factors of diabetes differ in each type of diabetes. Some  common causes of diabetes in each type are as follows:

  1. Type 1 diabetes – The exact cause of type 1 diabetes is not known yet. Doctors around the world say that the immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This removes almost all of the insulin in your body and it increases the level of sugar in your body. Viruses, environmental factors, and genes are also thought to be causing factors of type 1 diabetes.
  2. Type 2 diabetes – It is a result of environmental (lifestyle factors) and genetic factors. Overweight people are also said to be at more risk of acquiring type 2 diabetes. People with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and a sedentary lifestyle are at more risk of type 2 diabetes. It is the most common type of diabetes.
  3. Gestational diabetes – It is a result of hormonal changes in pregnant women. Overweight women are at more risk of this type of diabetes.

Genetics is a common risk factor in all types of diabetes.
