What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic medical condition that affects how your body processes glucose (sugar), which is the primary source of energy for your cells. Glucose comes from the foods you eat and is carried in your bloodstream to cells throughout your body. To enter cells and be used for energy, glucose requires a hormone called insulin, which is produced by the pancreas.It’s important to note that diabetes is a serious condition, but with proper management, people with diabetes can lead healthy and fulfilling lives. If you suspect you have diabetes or have been diagnosed with it, it’s essential to work closely with healthcare professionals to develop a personalized management plan.

Untreated or poorly managed diabetes can lead to various complications, including:

  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Kidney disease
  • Nerve damage (neuropathy)

Types of Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes

This autoimmune condition typically develops in childhood or adolescence. Individuals with Type 1 diabetes have a deficiency of insulin, a hormone essential for glucose regulation. They require insulin injections to manage their blood sugar levels.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form and often occurs in adulthood. It is characterized by insulin resistance, where the body's cells do not effectively use insulin. Lifestyle modifications, including diet and exercise, play a crucial role in management.

Gestational Diabetes

Some pregnant women develop gestational diabetes, which can affect both mother and baby's health. Proper monitoring and management are essential during pregnancy.

Prediabetes

Prediabetes is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as Type 2 diabetes. It is a warning sign that individuals are at risk of developing diabetes if lifestyle changes are not made.

Gestational Diabetes

Occurring during pregnancy, gestational diabetes affects some women who have never had diabetes before. It usually resolves after childbirth, but women who experience it are at a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes later in life.

Secondary Diabetes

Some medical conditions or medications can lead to high blood sugar levels, resulting in secondary diabetes. For example, certain hormonal disorders, pancreatic diseases, or the use of medications like corticosteroids can cause secondary diabetes.

Causes of Diabetes

In Type 1 diabetes, the immune system mistakenly targets and destroys insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. This autoimmune response is the primary cause, although genetic factors may play a role.

Type 2 diabetes is primarily driven by insulin resistance, where the body’s cells do not respond effectively to insulin. Genetic factors, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and dietary habits contribute to insulin resistance.

During pregnancy, hormonal changes can lead to insulin resistance in some women. This temporary condition results in gestational diabetes.

Other, less common forms of diabetes can result from specific medical conditions, medications, or genetic mutations.

In some cases, emotional or physical stress can lead to temporarily elevated blood sugar levels..

Common Symptoms of Diabetes

Excessive thirst and frequent urination are early signs of diabetes. High blood sugar levels lead to the removal of excess glucose through urine, causing increased urination.

Despite increased appetite, individuals with diabetes may experience unexplained weight loss due to the body’s inability to use glucose for energy.

Diabetes can lead to feelings of fatigue and weakness, as cells do not receive adequate glucose for energy.

High blood sugar levels can affect the fluid levels in the eyes, leading to blurry vision.

Diabetes can impair the body’s ability to heal wounds and injuries, increasing the risk of infections.
