Diabetes is a chronic disease featuring high blood sugar and is of three types. Type 1 involves lack of the hormone insulin secreted by the pancreas. Type 2 involves reduced amount insulin production or insulin resistance by body cells.
Managing high blood sugar level is the most important aspect of diabetes treatment. Proper diet and exercise along with medications are effective in keeping the blood sugar level within a tolerable limit.
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which is characterised by elevated levels of blood sugar caused by insufficient production of insulin or the inability of the body cells to respond to insulin.
Type 1 Diabetes is a grave metabolic disorder in which the body’s own immune system starts attacking and destroying the insulin, producing beta cells present in the islet of Langerhans in the pancreas.
Diabetes is a chronic disease in which glucose absorption by body cells is impaired by lack or reduced amount of insulin (hormone) production by the pancreas or insulin resistance by the human body.
