DIABETES MELLITUS:

What Is Diabetes Mellitus?

Diabetes Mellitus, additionally called Diabetes, is a term for several conditions involving how your body turns food into energy.

At the point when you eat carbohydrate, your body transforms it into a sugar called glucose and sends that to your circulatory system. Your pancreas discharges insulin, a hormone that helps move glucose from your blood into your cells, which use it for vitality.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS AND CAUSES - TYPE 1 DIABETES?

Outline:

Type 1 diabetes, also known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-resistant diabetes, is a relentless condition where the pancreas makes essentially no insulin. Insulin is a hormone expected to permit sugar (glucose) to enter cells to make energy.

HOW DO YOU DIAGNOSE AND TREAT - TYPE 1 DIABETES?

Diagnosis

Diagnostic tests include:

  • Glycated haemoglobin (A1C) test.

This blood test shows your normal glucose level for as far back as 2 to 3 months. It estimates the level of glucose joined to the oxygen-conveying protein in red cells (haemoglobin). The higher your glucose levels, the more haemoglobin you’ll have with sugar added. An A1C level of 6.0 per cent or higher on two separate tests demonstrates diabetes.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS AND CAUSES - TYPE 2 DIABETES?

Overview:

Type 2 diabetes being a chronic condition affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose), an important source of fuel for your body. With type 2 diabetes, your body either doesn’t produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels or resists the effects of insulin.
