Do you know what diabetes is and what it causes?
Nowadays hearing about diabetes is as common as hearing about tacos, besides being among the four leading causes of death in the world as reported in 2012 by the WHO, causing more deaths per year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.
But, do we really know what diabetes is, its symptoms and mainly its causes, and how can we prevent this disease if we don’t know it?
First of all, diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body does not effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. Without enough insulin, glucose cannot leave the blood to be converted into energy, so the level of glucose rises as it accumulates in the blood producing hyperglycemia, which over time seriously damages many organs and systems.
It is currently classified into 3 different types:
Type I diabetes was formerly called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. It commonly occurs in children and adolescents, although it may appear later in life.
“It is characterized by hypoglycemia caused by an absolute lack of insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, so people with this condition require insulin injections throughout life.”
Type II diabetes was formerly called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. It usually appears in adulthood, but in recent years the condition has increased in children and adolescents. The main risk factors are obesity, physical inactivity and poor diet.
“Characterized by hyperglycemia caused by a defect in insulin secretion, usually accompanied by insulin resistance, people with this type of diabetes do not need insulin for life; they can control blood sugar with diet and exercise alone or in combination with oral medications or supplemental insulin.”
Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnant women who have never had diabetes but have a high blood glucose level during pregnancy. The cause is unknown, but it is believed to be caused by insulin resistance that develops in the placenta that supports the baby. Because the hormones in the placenta block the action of insulin in the mother’s body, the placenta cannot produce or use insulin.
This disease can attack from the youngest to the oldest in the house, that is why it is essential to prevent, change harmful habits and begin to create a healthy lifestyle that provides quality of life for all family members.
