What is Diabetes?

 

Diabetes mellitus is a medical condition in which the body has more than normal blood sugar levels. Commonly referred to as diabetes, the condition is caused when the body is either unable to use the insulin effectively or the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that assists in breaking down glucose into energy. Diabetes has two common types but there are other types as well such as gestational diabetes, which occurs in women during pregnancy. SRL Diagnostics is well equipped to run tests for all types of diabetes.

 

Types

 

Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes are the two common diabetes types. Type 1 diabetes is an uncommon but severe type of diabetes and is referred to as juvenile diabetes because it mostly affects children and teenagers. It is an autoimmune disease, in which the body’s immune system starts attacking the insulin making islet cells in the pancreas, preventing them from producing enough insulin.Read More

Type 2 Diabetes occurs either when the pancreas does not secrete enough insulin (insulin insufficiency) or the body can’t recognize and use the insulin secreted (insulin resistance). This insulin insufficiency or resistance does not allow the glucose (sugar) to enter the cells making them build up in the bloodstream instead. This can damage many areas of the body including heart, blood vessels, kidney, eyes, brain etc.
