What Causes A Lack Of Insulin In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes?

What causes a lack of insulin in patients with type 2 diabetes? With type 2 diabetes, the pancreas usually produces some insulin. But either the amount produced is not enough for the body's needs, or the body's cells are resistant to it. Insulin resistance, or lack of sensitivity to insulin, happens primarily in fat, liver, and muscle cells. American Diabetes Association: "Frequently Asked Questions about Pre-Diabetes."

    Welcome Mike to DD. Lack of insulin or insulin insufficiency can be tested by a C Peptide test. Insulin resistance can also be tested with a C Peptide. If you have a high level of insulin and high fasting numbers you probably are insulin resistant. A very low number may indicate lack of insulin. Once your beta cells are damaged they usually don't regenerate and you will probably need injected insulin.

    From what I've read, a lot of doctors don't make the distinction between IR and insulin insufficiency. To my doctor, high blood sugar is the issue...WHY it's high is irrelevant. He started going down his list of medications, starting with Metformin. If it didn't work, he'd shrug and try the next drug on the list. I had to beg him to do tests (except lipids...he was crazy for lipid tests, even though mine were good every time). I want answers, so I wasn't happy with that. Seems to me you'd want to know WHY it's high to determine the best treatment.

Insulin Diseases

Insulin is a hormone that helps the body utilize glucose as a source of energy from food. There are several diseased conditions associated with disturbed insulin secretion and utilization by the body. These include: This is an all-encompassing term for hyperglycemia or excessive blood sugar. There are further classifications of diabetes mellitus. These include: Type 1 diabetes or Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) In these patients there are auto-immune mechanisms in which the bodys own immune cells attack the insulin producing beta cells of the pancreas. This leads to an absolute insulin deficiency. These patients need to be supplemented with insulin injections from outside. Type 2 or Non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) This is a condition where the body fails to produce the required amount of insulin. Thus there is a relative insulin deficiency. Genetic susceptibility, environmental factors, obesity, lack of physical exercise, insulin resistance etc. may lead to relative insulin deficiency. Gestational diabetes Some pregnant women require more insulin than their body can produce during pregnancy. This is also a state of relative insulin deficiency Impaired gl Continue reading >>

A US government-funded study has found smoking marijuana regularly for up to seven years does not impair lung function. Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham's School of Medicine monitored the lung function of over 5,000 young men and women over 20 years between 1985 and 2006, and found that smoking pot for seven 'joint years' - which means 365 joints a year - does not alter lung function. However, experts say this will probably not push forward the legalization of medical marijuana, as the drug poses other health risks.

How Does Lack Of Insulin Harm People With Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus (MEL-ih-tus), often referred to as diabetes, is characterized by high blood glucose (sugar) levels that result from the body’s inability to produce enough insulin and/or effectively utilize the insulin. Diabetes is a serious, life-long condition and the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism (the body's way of digesting food and converting it into energy). There are three forms of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that accounts for five- to 10-percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes may account for 90- to 95-percent of all diagnosed cases. The third type of diabetes occurs in pregnancy and is referred to as gestational diabetes. Left untreated, gestational diabetes can cause health issues for pregnant women and their babies. People with diabetes can take preventive steps to control this disease and decrease the risk of further complications. Continue reading >>
