mellitus is a metabolic disorder in which either the pancreas fail to produce
insulin hormone or the body cells become resistant to the insulin
The food you eat is broken
down into a sugar called glucose. Glucose levels increase after a meal, but quickly
return to normal as body cells remove excess glucose from the bloodstream. A hormone
called insulin in the bloodstream helps cells take up glucose and use it as energy.
But in some people, either the pancreas cells do not make insulin or cells of
the body cannot use the insulin properly. Without insulin, cells are unable to
take up glucose. Instead, high levels of glucose builds up in the bloodstream
causing Diabetics (where it can cause damage to eyes, nerves, and blood vessels).
are a number of factors, both genetic and environmental, that may increase a person's
risk of developing diabetes. People who have family members with diabetes are
at a higher risk for developing the disease. Although diabetes can run in families,
inheriting a particular gene mutation does not guarantee that a person will get
the disease. They must also have certain environmental factors that trigger diabetes,
which include obesity, inactivity, increasing age, and a history of gestational diabetes.
