What is Diabetes ? A disorder of metabolism --the way the body digests food for energy and growth.
3 Main Types of Diabetes Type 1 diabetes ~ Type 1 diabetes is believed to be an autoimmune disease. The body's immune system attacks the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes ~ Type 2 diabetes is believed to have a strong genetic link, meaning that it tends to run in families. Several genes are being studied that may be related to the cause of Type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes ~ Gestational diabetes is a carbohydrate intolerance of variable severity that starts or is first recognized during pregnancy or the inability of the tissues to absorb glucose from the bloodstream during pregnancy due to a lack of the hormone insulin.
Who Gets Diabetes? People of any age. Most common in older people, overweight and sedentary people, African Americans, Alaska Natives, American Indians, Asian and Pacific Islander Americans, and Hispanic Americans. People with a family history of diabetes.
Causes of Diabetes Type 1 Type1, also called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a disorder of the body's immune system that is, its system for protecting itself from viruses, bacteria or any "foreign" substances. It may run in families. Environmental factors, such as certain types of viral infections, formula feeding beginning before age 3 months (that is, breastfeeding for less than 3 months, or not at all), and exposure to certain food additives, such as nitrates and nitrosamines, may also contribute. It is most common in people of non-Hispanic white persons of Northern European descent, followed by African Americans and Hispanic Americans. It is relatively rare in those of Asian descent. It is slightly more common in men than in women.
