Diabetes is a nutritional disorder. It is a disease which occurs when the blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are higher than normal. When your body doesn’t produce enough insulin or doesn’t use insulin properly, the glucose levels in the blood becomes abnormally high. The abnormality in the Insulin levels leads to abnormalities in carbohydrates, fats and protein metabolism. These abnormalities lead to Diabetes.
The Word Diabetes is derived from the Greek word meaning “to siphon off or to pass through”, and Mellitus comes from Latin word meaning “Honey”.
The normal fasting blood sugar range is 90-110 mg per 100 ml and after meal is 120-160 mg per 100 ml.
There are two types of diabetes; Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes
In Type 1 diabetes is also know as Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM), the body fails to produce enough insulin. The disease is also known as early-onset diabetes and juvenile diabetes. In most cases, people often develop Type 1 diabetes during teenage years and early adulthood.
Type 2 diabetes
In Type 2 diabetes also known as Non Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM), either the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the body cells don’t react to insulin. Type 2 diabetes is the most common cases of diabetes all over the world and may last a lifetime.
If the abnormal glucose level stays in the blood for a prolonged period, then it leads to serious health complications such as stroke and heart disease. If left untreated, Type 2 diabetes can potentially damage the nerves, kidneys and eyes.
