If you regularly experience elevated blood sugar level, then you’re more likely suffers from Diabetes. It is a metabolic disorder in which your body experience high blood glucose level than the average or normal blood glucose level. According to the WHO report more than 105 million people lost their lives in 2012 due to this disease. Hence Diabetes can be fatal or harmful to the person who regularly experiences high blood sugar level.
The blood glucose level is controlled by two hormones namely Insulin and Glucagon. Both of these hormones are released by the Pancreatic Beta (β) cell, and alpha (α) cell respectively, both of these hormones act opposite to each other, i.e., antagonistic to each other. When the blood has elevated sugar level the beta (β) cell of Pancreas release insulin which lowers the blood glucose level whereas when the body has low blood sugar level the alpha (α) cell of the Pancreas release Glucagon which maintains the normal or healthy blood sugar level.
Type of Diabetes
Diabetes is also known as Diabetes Mellitus, and it is mainly divided into three groups which are listed below:
1. Type 1
Type 1 diabetes is also consider as insulin-dependent Diabetes Mellitus. Type 1 diabetes occurs mostly due to the loss of beta (β) cell which is responsible for the production of insulin. It also occurs due to the autoimmune disease and a genetic disorder.
2. Type 2
Type 2 diabetes occurs due to the insulin resistance, i.e., the cell fails to respond to insulin due to which the blood glucose level increases to the normal/average level. Thus type 2 Diabetes is regarded as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. The leading cause of type 2 diabetes is high body weight, lack of sufficient exercise, and many more.
3 Gestational Diabetes
