Diabetes is the condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy. Most of the food we eat is converted into glucose, or sugar, for our bodies to be able to make use of it for energy.
The pancreas, an organ that lies close to the stomach, makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn't make enough insulin or can't use its own insulin as well as it should. This causes excess sugars to build up in your blood. This is the reason many people refer to diabetes as "sugar" but can be controlled NATURALLY with the help of Natural Remedy.
Type 1 diabetes, previously called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or juvenileonset diabetes, may account for 5 percent to 10 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes.
Risk factors are less well defined for Type 1 diabetes than for Type 2 diabetes, but autoimmune, genetic, and environmental factors are involved in the development of this type 1 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes was previously called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or adult to onset diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes may account for about 90 percent to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes.
The Risk factors for Type 2 diabetes include
Family history of diabetes
Prior history of gestational diabetes
Impaired glucose tolerance
Physical inactivity, and race/ethnicity.
Gestational diabetes develops in 2 percent to 5 percent of all pregnancies but usually disappears when a pregnancy is over. Gestational diabetes occurs more frequently in African.
Obesity is also associated with higher risk. Women who have had gestational diabetes are at increased risk for later developing Type 2 diabetes. In some studies, nearly 40 percent of women with a history of gestational diabetes developed diabetes in the future.
