Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose or blood sugar levels are high. Glucose is produced when the food we eat is digested and released into blood. The produced glucose should enter the cells to be utilized as energy by the body. In order for the glucose to be entered into cells, Pancreas an organ in our body produces insulin which helps the glucose to enter the cells. When there is a lack of insulin production or lack of insulin utilization, the glucose produced after digestion remains in the blood leading to diabetes. Diabetes is of three types, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, and Gestational Diabetes. In Type 1 Diabetes, body does not make insulin. In Type 2 Diabetes, body does not utilize the produced insulin well. Gestational Diabetes happens in pregnant women with no prior history of diabetes leading to problems in pregnancy and baby’s health. Symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger. Excess blood sugar for prolonged period of time effects eyes, kidney, skin problems, nerves, heart, stroke etc. The department that deals with diabetes is called Endocrinology.
