Causes of Diabetes

The various types of diabetes are different disorders with different causes:

Obesity may be a cause for diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes This type of diabetes is an autoimmune disease. Your immune system turns on itself and destroys the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas. Although type 1 diabetes usually develops in childhood or teen years, it can appear later.

Type 2 Diabetes In this type, your pancreas makes some insulin, but not enough. Your cells also can become resistant to insulin's effects, keeping insulin from escorting enough glucose into your body's cells. Type 2 diabetes generally develops after age 40. However, doctors are seeing a rise in childhood type 2 diabetes that parallels the rise in obesity among youth. A form of type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, develops during 2 percent to 5 percent of pregnancies. In gestational diabetes, your body doesn't effectively use the insulin you produce. The cause may be metabolic changes that occur due to the effects of hormones in pregnancy. Gestational diabetes usually disappears after pregnancy, but more than half of women who experience it eventually develop a permanent type 2 diabetes.

I have been looking for a chart that has blood sugar levels. At each level there's a drawing, let's say a smile is on one level witch measures 6.2, but another drawing as a frown with the blood sugar level at 4.0.this scale of different level with a drawing filla in a sheet of 8.5 by 11 inches. this is a very good scale for everyone especially children. Thank You

actually diabetic is incured disease,but here at hyderabad POSITIVE HOMEOPATHY LAUNCHES DIABETIC CELL,THEY SAID TO ALL OF THE PATIENTS DIABETIC MUST CURED AFTER 4YRS,AND COLLECT THE PACKAGE MONEY FOR FOUR YEARS 40000/ LIKE THAT,BUT ALL VIEWERS THINK THAT,DIABETIC IS NOT A CURABLE DISEASE,DONT UNDER THEIR TRAP,IF THEY REALLY CURED THE DIABETIS ASKED THE GUARENTEE CERTIFICATE,OTHERWISE DONT GO THAT SIDE

ALL DISEASES CAN BE CURED, ONLY THING IS, WE ARE STILL INCAPABLE TO FIND THE CORRECT METHOD TO CURE. IF WE ARE UNABLE TO CURE DISEASES, THEN OUR BASIC CONCEPT OF CAUSE OF DISEASES IF WRONG. ONCE OUR CONCEPT OF CAUSE OF DISEASE IS CORRECT WE AUTOMATICALLY GET THE WAYS TO CURE. THINK DEEPLY TO UNDERSTAND THESE WORDS.
