There is no cure to diabetes, but certain important measures can be taken to keep diabetes under control. There are many factors leading to the cause of diabetes in people. These factors include one’s diet, family history, health, environmental aspects; meaning to say that there is no cause of diabetes that is common to all the people affected by the disease. In my knowledge there are two types of causes that lead to diabetes.

Type One:

This is the type of diabetes where the beta cells that produce insulin in the pancreas, are destroyed. This leads to a state of staggering levels of glucose and insulin in the blood levels which are not usually adequate. Insulin needs to be administered in the form of injections or pumps externally from the body. Type 1 diabetes is usually found developing in adults more than in children. The symptoms to this type of diabetes are:

  • Heightened Thirst
  • Weight loss
  • Tiredness
  • Genital itching

The Short Term Complications to Type-1 Diabetes are:

  • Ketoacidosis: this is when the inadequate production of insulin causes large amounts of glucose to enter the cells. When this happens the body starts to burn fatty acids to produce energy and unhealthy amounts of acidic ketone bodies. This causes long term side effects such as vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss etc.
  • Hypoglycemia: it is when you have very low levels of sugar in your blood.

The Long Term Effects of Type-1 Diabetes are:

  • Kidney problems that lead to swelling of feet, ankles, shortness of breath, darker urine flow, tiredness and nausea and vomiting.
  • Heart diseases sometimes even resulting to a stroke.
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Retinopathy: this is a form of diabetic retinopathy, which may cause blindness and severe eye problems as well.

Type Two:

This is the type of history that has a lot to do and is affected by the family history amongst younger generations. In this type of diabetes, the blood glucose levels are so high that insulin production is curbed by the body. The little insulin that is produced in this diabetes experiences a resistance from the body and does not get used. This is the kind of diabetes that can pass on through genes of a family. If an ancestor was diagnosed with diabetes, then the predecessors are most likely to give rise to this diabetes if they live an unhealthy lifestyle.

This is a form of Hyperglycemia, a case somewhere opposite to hypoglycemia of the type 1 diabetes.

The Symptoms of Type-2 Diabetes are:

  • Sudden loss of muscle mass
  • Extreme thirst 
  • Increased hunger
  • Tiredness in the body

A lot of Risk Factors are Noticed in Type-2 Diabetes:

  • Being overweight or obese
  • An unhealthy diet routine
  • Having raised cholesterol levels
  • High blood pressure
  • Physical inactivity
