Diabetes is a group of diseases that are caused due to the imbalance or excess of sugar (glucose) in the body and this affects how your body uses the sugar.
Glucose is the main source of energy for your body. It not only helps make up our body cells, muscles and tissues but also acts as fuel for our brain. The glucose or sugar levels have to be maintained fairly constant in the body. The excess of sugar in the body leads to various health problems.
The cause of diabetes varies from person to person. It is considered a genetic disorder and runs in families. However, anybody can suffer from it, even if it does not run in your family. Some risk factors include sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, extremely stressful life, lack of sleep, etc. These factors increase the likelihood of getting diabetes.
There are two types of diabetes - type 1 and type 2. There is also a stage called prediabetes which is reversible diabetes. It is mainly caused during pregnancy where sugar levels are higher than normal but not so high as to classify as diabetes. In such people, usually, the sugar level comes back to normal once the baby is delivered.
Type 1 diabetes - Usually, it appears in childhood or teenage life. However, it can occur at any age.
Type 2 diabetes - Most of the time, it appears at an older age, that is, after 40 years. However, this type can also be seen at any age of life.
The symptoms experienced by each individual depend on how much the sugar is increased in your body. The most common symptoms are:
