Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels, either because of insulin production is inadequate or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin or both. Type 1 diabetes (insulin-dependent diabetes) was known as juvenile diabetes as it is usually diagnosed in children and young adults. It arises from the autoimmune destruction of insulin-producing pancreatic β cells and it can be managed with insulin as well as dietary changes and exercise. Whereas type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes) is a heterogeneous condition resulting from a combination of insulin resistance and inadequate insulin secretion by pancreatic beta cells. Type 2 diabetes can be managed with non-insulin medications, insulin, weight loss, or dietary changes. Type 3 diabetes is caused by the insulin resistance in the brain and it may lead to Alzheimer’s disease. There are several other rare types of diabetes such as latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA), double diabetes, and brittle diabetes. The common symptoms of diabetes are weight loss, slow healing wounds, polyuria (increased urination), numbness in the feet, polydipsia (increased thirst), and polyphagia (increased hunger).
