Diabetes which is also sometimes referred to as diabetes mellitus or blood sugar is a health issue related to the endocrine system of human body. Under this condition, apt or required amount of insulin is not produced by the beta cells of the pancreas. This in turn leads to increase in the level of blood sugar. It is owing to the reason that sugar present in the blood is oxidized or converted into energy required for various physical and mental functions only with the help of insulin hormone. In the absence of this hormone or low level of this hormone in the body, the process of conversion of glucose into energy is also affected adversely.
As a result of this, the concerned person suffers from low levels of energy and complains of constant fatigue and tiredness. The patient becomes physically weak and fragile. Presence of excess of glucose in the blood is also called as hyperglycemia. The condition of diabetes is categorized into two types- Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The first one is the condition under which there is complete absence of hormone insulin due to incapacity or incapability of beta cells of pancreas to secrete insulin.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease under which the beta cells of the pancreas are affected adversely by the immune system. And this results into malfunctioning of the same. Since no insulin is produced under the first type of diabetes therefore it requires administration of artificial insulin. The patient has to take artificial insulin in the form of medicines throughout his/her life so as to normalize functions of the pancreatic cells. Due to dependence upon artificial insulin, it is also called as insulin dependent or juvenile diabetes.
Contrary to this, second type of diabetes is a condition under which the pancreatic cells produce insulin hormone but it is insufficient for sugar or glucose oxidation. Certain dietary or lifestyle changes can help in controlling this type of diabetes.
