What is diabetes?
Diabetes
Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism (metabolism is the process by which our bodies use digested food for growth and for energy). Most foods we eat are broken down to glucose, which is the form in which there is sugar in the blood. Glucose is the main source of fuel for the body. After digestion, glucose passes into the bloodstream, where it is used by cells for growth and for energy.


Because glucose can penetrate into cells requires the presence of insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, which is a large gland located behind the stomach. When we eat, the pancreas automatically produces the proper amount of insulin to move glucose into the blood located inside our cells.


In people with diabetes, however, the pancreas either produces too little insulin or no or cells do not respond appropriately to the insulin that is secreted. Thus, the body loses its main source of fuel even though the blood contains large amounts of sugar.


What are the types of diabetes?
The three types of diabetes are:
- Type 1 diabetes;
- Type 2 diabetes;
Gestational diabetes (pregnancy)
Diabetes type 1 Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease occurs when the body's defense system (immune system), whose role is anti-infectious defense, turns against a part of the body. In diabetes, the immune system attacks the insulin-producing beta cells, located in the pancreas and destroys them. The pancreas produces insulin in small amounts or not at all. A person who has type 1 diabetes must take insulin daily to survive.


At present, scientists do not know exactly what causes the body's immune system to attack the beta cells, but the factors involved are considered autoimmune, genetic and environmental, possibly viral. Type 1 diabetes occurs in about 5 to 10% of all cases of diabetes. It develops most often in children and young adults but can occur at any age.
