Diabetes is the condition in which the glucose level in the blood goes above the normal limit. It falls under metabolic disorder. Generally diabetes refers to diabetes mellitus and not the diabetes insipidus, which is rarely seen. Glucose is the main fuel for our body and body cells require this important element to work properly.
Glucose comes naturally with the foods that contain carbohydrate. Diabetes mellitus occurs when the pancreas, the organ that is responsible for producing insulin is either unable to make insulin or the insulin produced by the gland is not properly used by the body cells. Whatever the cause, the result is glucose remains in the bloodstream and is not utilized by any of the body cells. The insulin is the key that is used by the cells to consume the glucose present in the blood. In diabetes, the insulin is of no use or the insulin is not produced in the wanted quantity so that the glucose remains in blood (high blood sugar) and creates condition called as diabetes mellitus.
Type One (called as IDDM – insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) and Type Two (NIDDM – noninsulin dependent diabetes mellitus). Type one usually occurs in people, who are under thirty years of age but as rare case, can occur at any age. Type one diabetes is seen approximately 15% of people with diabetes. Here, the pancreas cannot produce the insulin and therefore, these patients need to depend on insulin that is supplied from outside.
On the other hand, Type two diabetes affects nearly about 85% of the people with diabetes and that makes it more common among all. The condition occurs when insulin is produced but not in an adequate amount. The production is not totally stopped and therefore, body does not need extra insulin supplements from outside. There are drugs called as OHD – oral hypoglycemic drug that an control the blood sugar in the body. The patient has to take these pills without fail to keep the blood sugar levels in control.
