What is diabetes l.jpg
What is Diabetes ?

  • A disorder of metabolism--the way the body digests food for energy and growth.

3 main types of diabetes l.jpg
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.

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.
