Understanding Diabetes

dia-1

Diabetes is when your blood sugar or glucose which is the main source of energy in the body is too high. It comes from the food you eat and also made in the muscles and liver. The blood carries glucose to all the cells in the body to use for energy.

Types of Diabetes

The three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. You can develop diabetes at any age, irrespective of the gender.

Causes and Risk Factor

The causes of diabetes are:

  • The pancreas, an organ located between the stomach and spine releases a hormone called as insulin into the blood to help digestion.
  • This helps the blood to carry glucose all to the cells of the body.
  • But sometimes, your body does not make enough insulin or it does not work the way it should thereby the glucose will stay in the blood and do not reach the cells.
  • The blood glucose levels get too high and cause diabetes and over time too much glucose in the blood will cause health problems.

The risk factors of diabetes include:

  • Age
  • Weight
  • Race or ethnic background
  • Family history
  • Poor Diet
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Stress
  • Sedentary Lifestyle
  • Obesity and fat distribution
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Sex
  • Infection
  • Hypertension
  • Multiple risk factors

  • Diabetic retinopathy or eye problems
  • Diabetic neuropathy or nerve damage
  • Heart diseases and stroke
  • Diabetic nephropathy or kidney damage

How to Treat Diabetes?

  • Surgical

Surgery for diabetes will differ as per the type of diabetes:

  1. Surgery for type 1 diabetes: It is done only in special situations as in replacing the pancreas as in a pancreas transplant or to insert a working pancreases’ cells which is also called as islet transplantation which is experimental. The intensive insulin therapy is an aggressive treatment designed to control the blood sugar levels.
  2. Surgery for type 2 diabetes: Surgery can strongly improve this condition. The bariatric surgery and ileal interposition are considered to be an effective treatment option for people with diabetes.
  • Non Surgical

Although diabetes cannot be cured, you can live a long and healthy life by controlling the blood sugar levels by eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising and taking oral medicines or insulin if required.
