How Many Forms Of Diabetes Exist

What's mellitus diabetes? It's a pathology due to the alteration of carbohydrate metabolism. The pancreas, then, loses its ability to produce insulin, a protein hormone produced by beta cells and gradually decreases the amount until they completely stop to do it. Cells absorb sugar by this hormone and without it, the sugar isn’t absorbed and they remain in the blood causing a rise in blood glucose. How many forms of diabetes exist? There are too many types of diabetes that, even if it comes in a different way, the result is always the loss of the ability to produce insulin. The two principal types of diabetes are "diabetes of first type or youthful and diabetes of second type or adult. Other forms of diabetes are gestational diabetes that can occur temporarily in pregnant woman, diabetes MODY (Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young) and diabetes LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults) How diabetes mellitus type 1 develops? Diabetes type 1 or insulin dependent diabetes may develop due to disease of the pancreas, infectious or traumatic events like car accidents or surgery, but more often it becomes the first type of diabetes without being affected by such events.

    There are two main types: Diabetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus. The word ‘diabetes’ itself refers to excessive urination.
    Diabetes Mellitus is the common form we call ‘diabetes’ where high blood sugars result. Diabetes Insipidus is a much less common and completely different disease characterized by an inability to concentrate the urine.
    Diabetes Mellitus comes in two main forms Type 1 and Type 2 which were formally called juvenile and late onset diabetes respectively. There is also Gestational Diabetes which occurs transiently during pregnancy and some now refer to a Type 3 Diabetes which relates to dementia where sugar is not processed properly in the brain. Pre-diabetes refers to the period prior to full blown Type 2 where blood sugars are elevated but not quite to a ‘diseased’ state.

    The vast majority of diabetics are the Type 2 diabetics typified by older age and obesity. It has traditionally been considered a chronic disease treated with medicines to improve insulin production and sensitivity before progressing to insulin injections when this becomes inadequate. Change of diet, loss of weight and exercise can benefit and even reverse disease progression. There is currently a lot of research and conjecture around the treatment of T2D with a lot of scientists and medicos now moving away from the ‘chronic’ non-reversible beliefs.
