Types of Diabetes 


There are three major types of diabetes:


Type 1


Type 2 &


Gestational diabetes


Why it is Caused ?


Diabetes is characterized by constant high levels of glucose in blood. Causes of diabetes include, Insufficiency in insulin production, or no insulin production or cells that do not respond properly to the insulin that pancreas produces. Insulin is a naturally - occurring hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates the level of glucose in blood. Diabetes is caused when the body begins to have a problem with the insulin.


Type 1 and Type 2 affects persons of casual lifestyle. In both, glucose in the blood cannot move into the body cells, so it accumulates in the blood stream.


Body looks for alternative energy source and starts breaking down reserve fat and protein for producing the energy. Due to this process, symptoms like frequent urination, unusual thirst, weight loss and extreme fatigue are observed in diabetic patients.


Diabetes information is needed to identify it at the initial stages. If left untreated, it can put you at the risk of a host of complications like  kidney failure, cardiovascular problems, neuropathy and gangrene, etc. In addition, Untreated or uncontrolled gestational diabetes affects the pregnant women and their fetus.
