  • Diabetes is one of the most common diseases that
    have quadrupled from 1980 according to World
    Health Organization. Diabetes is a chronic
    disease which is either caused due to genetics or
    poor eating habits or if your body failed to
    produce enough insulin. However, if the diabetic
    patient is taking medications and following a
    strict diet along with physical exercises then it
    can be controlled lifelong without any
    complications.

Causes of diabetic mellitus  
  • The number one cause of diabetes mellitus or
    simply known as diabetes is genetics. If it runs
    in the family then regular blood tests help to
    check the sugar levels and detect early if there
    are any abnormal levels. Other causes may be if
    your body produces less amount of insulin or if
    you have high carb diet and processed food with
    less or no physical activity.

Types of Diabetes
  • Basically, diabetes is divided into three types
    namely Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes
    and gestational diabetes mellitus. However, out
    of these three, the gestational diabetes occurs
    only to few women particularly during the
    pregnancy time like in their third trimester.
    Post-delivery the patient will not have any
    diabetes, but the doctors recommend to get a
    periodic blood tests to check the sugar levels as
    they may be slightly at higher risk to develop a
    type 1 or type 2 diabetes in future than the
    other women.

Type 1 Diabetes
  • Type 1diabetes mostly occurs in young kids and
    adolescent though it may develop in adults too.
    This is also known as insulin dependent type of
    diabetes where the patient needs to take insulin
    to maintain a normal blood sugar level.

Type 2 Diabetes
  • Mostly Type 2 diabetes show very few symptoms
    thus diligent care should be taken if you have
    any of the following symptoms like tingling
    sensations in your feet or hand, abnormal weight
    loss or gain, urge to urinate often, long time to
    heal cuts or vision problems. Your doctor will
    order the appropriate blood tests and put on
    medication according to your sugar level and in
    some cases he may advise to take insulin
    injection as well.
