Diabetes is a very common metabolic disorder where in there will be abnormal increases in the blood glucose level. Diabetes can be caused in different age groups but commonly seen after 40 years. It is one of the fastest growing disease.
WHAT IS DIABETES?
It is a metabolic disorder wherein there is not enough production of insulin by pancreas or the cells become resistant to insulin (i.e cells doesn’t respond to the insulin).
Diabetes is divided into 2 types :
Type 1 diabetes: Will be insulin dependent since the bêta cells of pancreas does not produce insulin.
Type 2 diabetes : Non insulin dependant
HOW DOES DIABETES OCCUR?
Insulin, the principle hormone that regulates the uptake of glucose from the blood into most cells after digesting the carbohydrates from most common food will be converted to glucose. Insulin is thus released from pancreas during high glucose level and this helps in absorbing glucose to the body cells for energy and for storage. If there is less production of insulin or cells become insulin resistant, there would not be absorption of glucose in the body nor it gets stored in the liver, thus the glucose increases in the blood stream thus increasing the blood glucose level. When there is increased level, there will be incomplete absorption of glucose in kidney and it remains in urine thus resulting in glucosuria..
