Diabetes (or diabetes mellitus) is a group of diseases that result in too much blood sugar or blood glucose in the body. Most of the food we eat, produce glucose or sugar to be used for energy in our body. Insulin hormone helps glucose to get into cells of our body. It affects when a body is unable to produce inadequate insulin, or the body cell’s stop responding to insulin, or both emerge together.
What is the pancreas?
It is a body organ near the stomach, that produces the insulin hormone and releases into the digestive system.
There are various types of diabetes such as type 1, type 2, pre-diabetes, Gestational Diabetes, MODY 6, and type 4. But here, we are going to discuss the three major type of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. We also discuss how diabetes affects patients with high blood P pressure.
Type 1 is the diabetes condition when the immune system mistakenly damages the beta cells of the pancreas, and it starts producing less or no insulin. Diabetes Type 1 generally develops in childhood or adolescence and used to call as juvenile-diabetes. But this can also develop in adulthood. Only 10% of people suffer from Type 1 diabetes.
This can be easily treated by injecting insulin into the body via a syringe. It can be controlled by taking adequate diet and daily physical exercises.
