Diabetes Care

What is Diabetes ?

Diabetes is a condition in which your blood glucose, often known as blood sugar, is abnormally high. Your main source of energy is blood glucose, which comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, aids glucose absorption into cells for use as energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t produce enough — or any — insulin, or it doesn’t use it properly. Glucose remains in your circulation and does not reach your cells as a result.

Having too much glucose in your blood might lead to health issues over time. Although there is no cure for diabetes, you may take efforts to manage it and stay healthy.

 

Causes & Treatment

What Types of Diabetes?

What are the many kinds of diabetes?

Type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes are the most frequent kinds of diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes is a type of diabetes in which the body does not produce insulin if you have type 1 diabetes. Your immune system targets and destroys the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas. Diabetes type 1 is most commonly diagnosed in children and young adults, but it can strike anyone at any age. To stay alive, people with type 1 diabetes must take insulin every day.

Diabetes type 2

Your body does not generate or utilise insulin well if you have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can strike at any age, including youth. This type of diabetes, on the other hand, is more common in middle-aged and older adults.

Diabetes during pregnancy

During pregnancy, some women acquire gestational diabetes. This type of diabetes usually goes away once the baby is born. If you’ve experienced gestational diabetes, though, you’re more likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life. It’s possible that diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy is actually type 2.

ITS GETTING COMMON:

Diabetes affected 30.3 million persons in the United States in 2015, accounting for 9.4% of the population. More than one-fourth of them were unaware that they had the condition. One in in four people over the age of 65 has diabetes. In adults, type 2 diabetes accounts for 90-95 percent of occurrences. 1
