Diabetes is growing like a wildfire in India, turning the country as the diabetes capital of the world. Though Diabetes is multifactorial- the leading causes are genetics and lifestyle. All these causes can lead to insulin resistance when your body doesn’t use insulin as it should. The main reason for type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance.

Title: What are the possible causes of Diabetes Mellitus?

What Are The Possible Causes Of Diabetes
Mellitus?
  • Diabetes is growing like a wildfire in India,
    turning the country as the diabetes capital of
    the world. Though Diabetes is multi-factorial-the
    leading causes are genetics and lifestyle. All
    these causes can lead to insulin resistance when
    your body doesnt use insulin as it should. The
    main reason of type 2 diabetes is insulin
    resistance.

Genetics
  • Type 2 Diabetes can be related to
    genetics. That doesnt mean that if your mother
    or father has (or had) type 2 diabetes, youre
    guaranteed to develop it instead, it means that
    you have a greater chance of developing type
    2. Researchers know that you can inherit a risk
    for type 2 diabetes, but its difficult to
    pinpoint which genes carry the risk. The medical
    community is hard at work trying to figure out
    the certain genetic mutations that lead to a risk
    of type 2.

Lifestyle
  • Genes do play a role in type 2 diabetes, but
    lifestyle choices are also important. You can,
    for example, have a genetic mutation
    that may make you susceptible to type 2, but if
    you take good care of your body, you may not
    develop diabetes. Say that two people have the
    same genetic mutation. One of them eats well,
    watches their cholesterol, and stays physically
    fit, and the other is overweight (BMI greater
    than 25) and inactive. The person who is
    overweight and inactive is much more likely to
    develop type 2 diabetes because certain lifestyle
    choices greatly influence how well your body uses
    insulin.Glucose builds up in the blood when you
    are insulin resistant, leading to the symptoms
    associated with type 2 diabetes.

Some Of The Lifestyle Choices That Develops Type
2 Diabetes Are
  •  Lack of exercise Physical activity has many
    benefitsone of them being that it can help you
    avoid type 2 diabetes, if youre susceptible.
  •  Unhealthy food habits A meal plan filled with
    high-fat foods and lacking in fiber (which you
    can get from grains, vegetables, and fruits)
    increases the likelihood of type 2.
  • Overweight/Obesity Lack of exercise and
    unhealthy meal planning choices can lead to
    obesity, or make it worse. Being overweight makes
    it more likely that youll become insulin
    resistant and can also lead to many other health
    conditions.
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Combination of factorsgenetic susceptibility and
    lifestyle choicescauses insulin resistance. If
    your body is insulin resistant, it doesnt use
    insulin properly.
  • Your body may produce enough insulin to transport
    the glucose to the cells (you can read more about
    how insulin works in our article on insulin), but
    unfortunately, the body resists that insulin.
  •  Glucose builds up in the blood when you are
    insulin resistant, leading to the symptoms
    associated with type 2 diabetes.

Risk Factors for Diabetes
  • Family history In a Type 2 diabetes there is a
    hereditary factor. 
  • Race/ethnicity 
  • Certain ethnic groups are more likely to develop
    type 2 diabetes, like Native Americans, Hispanic
    Americans, African-Americans, and Asian
    Americans.
  • Age Age increases the risk of developing type 2
    diabetes in an individual. At the age 45, your
    risk starts to rise, and after age 65, your risk
    increases exponentially.
  • Gestational diabetes If you have diabetes while
    you were pregnant, that increases your risk for
    developing type 2 diabetes.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) The risk of
    type 2 diabetes increases if you have polycystic
    ovary syndrome (PCOS) because its related to
    insulin resistance. There are many cysts in your
    ovaries, and one possible cause is insulin
    resistance.
