A chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin which is a hormone needed to allow glucose to enter cells to produce energy. It is normally seen in children and in adolescents. Though it has no cure, it can be managed by controlling blood sugar with insulin, exercise and diet. Symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, sudden weight loss, fatigue, acute hunger and blurred vision.
People with Type 2 diabetes either do not secrete sufficient insulin or do not use it well. Glucose remains in the blood. This disease starts with insulin resistance wherein the cells do not respond normally to insulin and later the body does not produce sufficient insulin. Being overweight, leading a sedentary life and genetic factors are key factors leading to the disease. Symptoms include increased hunger, frequent urination, increased thirst, sores that do not heal and sudden weight loss.
Diabetes cannot be cured but can be managed through a combination of medication, exercise and diet.
Complications due to diabetes can adversely affect the major organs in your body such as the heart, vascular system, feet, nerves, eyes and kidneys. Maintaining a normal blood sugar level can dramatically reduce the risk of many complications. If the sugar levels remain unchecked and untreated, chronic complications arise over the longer term such as diabetic retinopathy, nerve damage or neuropathy, foot problems, strokes, heart problems, diabetic nephropathy or kidney disease, severe dehydration, build-up of ketones, erectile dysfunction and urinary infection.
Identifying and preventing diabetes related complications is best done by a multidisciplinary team. Patients can develop multiple conditions which can be managed through effective case management. Due to the wide array of complications, an interdisciplinary team comprising of Diabetologist, Physician, Cardiologist, Surgeon, Ophthalmologist and Nephrologist among others help in treating complications arising from diabetes.
