Causes of Diabetes
The pancreas (an organ located behind the stomach) releases insulin to help the body store and use the sugar obtained from food. The body breaks down the sugars and starches from food into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells in the body. Insulin allows the glucose from the blood to enter the cells.
Main types of diabetes
- Type 1 diabetes may be called juvenile-onset or insulin-dependent diabetes.
- Type 2 is the most common type of diabetes and may be referred to as adult-onset or non-insulin-dependent diabetes.
- Gestational diabetics develop the disease during pregnancy and it often resolves after the delivery of the infant.
Diabetes develops when: the pancreas does not produce any insulin (type 1), the pancreas produces very little insulin (type 2), or the body does not respond appropriately to insulin (type 2). With diabetes, glucose is not available for cells to function properly, and the high levels of glucose in the blood can damage the eyes, kidneys, nerves, or the heart. Type 1 diabetes requires injections of insulin to allow the cells to use glucose for energy. Type2 diabetes can be treated by making adjustments in nutrition, exercise, and mental stressors.
Insufficient production of insulin (either absolutely or relative to the body's needs), production of defective insulin (which is uncommon), or the inability of cells to use insulin properly and efficiently leads to hyperglycaemia and diabetes. This latter condition affects mostly the cells of muscle and fat tissues, and results in a condition known as insulin resistance. This is the primary problem in type 2 diabetes. The absolute lack of insulin, usually secondary to a destructive process affecting the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas, is the main disorder in type1 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, there also is a steady decline of beta cells that adds to the process of elevated blood sugars. Essentially, if someone is resistant to insulin, the body can, to some degree, increase production of insulin and overcome the level of resistance. After time, if production decreases and insulin cannot be released as vigorously, hyperglycaemia develops.
Glucose is a simple sugar found in food. Glucose is an essential nutrient that provides energy for the proper functioning of the body cells. Carbohydrates are broken down in the small intestine and the glucose in digested food is then absorbed by the intestinal cells into the bloodstream, and is carried by the bloodstream to all the cells in the body where it is utilized. However, glucose cannot enter the cells alone and needs insulin to aid in its transport into the cells. Without insulin, the cells become starved of glucose energy despite the presence of abundant glucose in the bloodstream. In certain types of diabetes, the cells' inability to utilize glucose gives rise to the ironic situation of starvation in the midst of plenty. The abundant, unutilized glucose is wastefully excreted in the urine.
Insulin is a hormone that is produced by specialized cells (beta cells) of the pancreas. (The pancreas is a deep-seated organ in the abdomen located behind the stomach.) In addition to helping glucose enter the cells, insulin is also important in tightly regulating the level of glucose in the blood. After a meal, the blood glucose level rises. In response to the increased glucose level, the pancreas normally releases more insulin into the bloodstream to help glucose enter the cells and lower blood glucose levels after a meal. When the blood glucose levels are lowered, the insulin release from the pancreas is turned down. It is important to note that even in the fasting state there is a low steady release of insulin than fluctuates a bit and helps to maintain a steady blood sugar level during fasting. In normal individuals, such a regulatory system helps to keep blood glucose levels in a tightly controlled range. As outlined above, in patients with diabetes, the insulin is either absent, relatively insufficient for the body's needs, or not used properly by the body. All of these factors cause elevated levels of blood glucose (hyperglycaemia).
