Diabetes (diabetes mellitus) is classed as a metabolism disorder. Metabolism refers to the way our bodies use digested food for energy and growth.
Most of what we eat is broken down into glucose. Glucose is a form of sugar in the blood - it is the principal source of fuel for our bodies.
When our food is digested the glucose makes its way into our bloodstream.
Our cells use the glucose for energy and growth. However, glucose cannot enter our cells without insulin being present – insulin makes it possible for our cells to take in the glucose.
Diabetes is a common life-long health condition. There are 2.6 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and over 500,000 people who have the condition but don’t know it.
Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism—the way the body uses digested food for growth and energy.
Most of the food people eat is broken down into glucose, the form of sugar in the blood. Glucose is the main source of fuel for the body.
After digestion, glucose passes into the bloodstream, where it is used by cells for growth and energy.
For glucose to get into cells, insulin must be present. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, a large gland behind the stomach.
Causes of Diabetes
Stress: Either physical injury or emotional disturbance is frequently blamed as the initial cause of the disease. Any disturbance in Cortiosteroid or ACTH therapy may lead to clinical signs of the disease.
Infection: Some of the strephylococci is suppose to be responsible factor for infection in pancreas.
Sex: Diabetes is commonly seen in elderly especially males but, strongly in women and those females with multiple pregnancy or suffering from (PCOS) Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Hypertension: It had been reported in many studies that there is direct relation between high systolic pressure and diabetes.
Treatment of Diabetes
Various diabetes drugs work in different ways to lower blood sugar. A drug may work by:
Stimulating the pancreas to produce and release more insulin
Inhibiting the production and release of glucose from the liver, which means you need less
insulin to transport sugar into your cells
- Blocking the action of stomach enzymes that break down carbohydrates or make tissues more sensitive to insulin.
Home Remedies for Treatment of Diabetes
