What is Diabetes? What happens in the body…
Diabetes is a disorder of the metabolism. Metabolism is the way the body uses food for energy and growth. People eat food and it is normally broken down into glucose, glucose is a form of sugar in the blood and fuels the body’s demands for energy. Glucose is used by cells for growth and energy. Insulin is what is needed for glucose to get into the cells, insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas. After eating the pancreas releases insulin to assist the glucose in the bloodstream to move into the cells. When diabetes is present there is little or no insulin released or it is released and the cells do not respond right. As a result glucose begins to build up in the blood and is filtered out by the kidneys and passed in the urine. The body then has lost its main source of fuel.
Types of Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adult. The body does not produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is characterized by the body not responding properly to insulin, a condition known as insulin resistance. Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnancy with risk to the mother and the baby.
Symptoms of Diabetes
Over 6 million people in U.S ( both adult and children) have undiagnosed diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes accounting for 90-95% of diabetes population.
Gestational diabetes accounts for 4% of all pregnancy
How is Diabetes Diagnosed?
Diabetes is usually diagnosed by a oral glucose tolerance test, OGTT. Another test is a fasting blood sugar, FBS. Often your doctor will determine what you FBS is and then have you drink something with high levels of sugar, then determine how your body is using the glucose.
