Diabetes is no child’s play. The ailment brings quite a few complications along and shouldn’t be taken lightly. When diabetes strikes the first thing that many people do is cut down on sugar. With diabetes, there are two main types. But, before moving ahead, let’s understand what really diabetes is.
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the scientific name which is generally used to refer to diabetes. It generally consists of a group of multiple metabolic diseases. They are generally caused when the blood sugar levels are over a prolonged period. The common symptoms which is indicative of high blood sugar include symptoms such as the urge to urinate frequently, increased thirst, and increased hunger.
When left untreated, diabetes is known to cause quite a few complications. Some of the few acute complications are diabetic ketoacidosis, nonketotic hyperosmolar coma and in extreme cases, it can be fatal and cause death. Some of the other serious long-term complications are heart disease, stroke, chronic kidney failure, foot ulcers, and damage to eyes.
The main cause of diabetes is your pancreas not functioning properly. When your pancreas is not able to produce enough insulin or in some cases when the cells of your body are not responding in an appropriate manner to the insulin produced, then the diabetes complications arise.
So, there are two different types of diabetes. What are they?
There are two types of diabetes. The Type 1 and Type 2.
The Type 1 DM is usually caused when your pancreas fails to produce the required insulin. Initially, this form was initially referred to as “insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” or juvenile diabetes. The exact cause for this ailment is currently unknown.
Now on the other end is the Type 2 DM. This begins when insulin resistance starts. In this case, the cells fail to respond to the insulin processed accordingly. As the disease progresses a lack of insulin is developed.
Initially, this was referred to as “non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” (NIDDM) or “adult-onset diabetes”.
The primary causes of this kind of diabetes is excessive body weight and failing to exercise enough.
Gestational diabetes is another form of diabetes and the third main form and occurs when pregnant women without a previous history of diabetes develop high blood sugar levels.
The prevention for this type of diabetes includes treatment, and for prevention, one should maintain a healthy diet, along with exercising regularly. Also a normal body weight, and avoiding the use of tobacco will help you lower your chances of diabetes.
Controlling blood pressure and maintaining proper foot care is important for people who are suffering from this ailment.
Type 1 DM has to be managed with insulin injections. On the other hand, Type 2 DM may be treated with the use of medications, which might or might not include insulin.
