Diabetes mellitus

Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger. If left untreated, Diabetes can cause many complications

Type 1 Diabetes (T1D): The body stops producing insulin or produces too little insulin to regulate blood glucose level.

Type 1 diabetes affects about 10% of all people with diabetes in the United States.

Type 1 diabetes is typically diagnosed during childhood or adolescence. It used to be referred to as juvenile-onset diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

Insulin deficiency can occur at any age due to destruction of the pancreas by alcohol, disease, or removal by surgery.

Type 2 Diabetes (T2D): Although the pancreas still secretes insulin, the body of someone with type 2 diabetes is partially or completely incapable of responding to insulin. This is often referred to as insulin resistance. The pancreas tries to overcome this resistance by secreting more and more insulin. People with insulin resistance develop type 2 diabetes when they fail to secrete enough insulin to cope with their body's demands.
