Diabetes

Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic endocrine pathology due to excessive levels of glucose in the blood, which is associated with its improper absorption by the body. A common disease occurs due to a deficiency in a hormone such as insulin. If the disease is not treated, it will progress, which will ultimately lead to impaired metabolism, a destructive process in which various organs, vessels and the nervous system are involved. Diabetes is a type of disease that is classified according to the severity of the course and the cause that caused them.

  • Type 1 diabetes affects mainly children and young people who can die without daily insulin injections.
  • The second type of diabetes occurs mainly in older people who have a history of being overweight.
  • Secondary diabetes is rarely diagnosed and usually against a background of another disease.
  • The latent type is characterized by an asymptomatic course.
  • A gestational form of the disease occurs with a temporary increase in blood sugar, for example, during pregnancy.

Causes of the disease

Factors contributing to the occurrence of insulin deficiency are:

  • An unbalanced diet, which is dominated by foods with high levels of fats, preservatives, dyes, as well as sweets.
  • Genetic predisposition.
  • Viral infections.
  • Sedentary lifestyle.
  • Obesity.
  • Violation of glucose tolerance.

Symptoms

  • A constant feeling of thirst.

  • Increased appetite and lack of full satiety.
  • Decreased libido and potency.
