Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).

Type-I Diabetes 

Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the sugars and starches you eat into a simple sugar called glucose, which it uses for energy. Insulin is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives.

Type-II Diabetes 

Type 2 diabetes, also known as “Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus” (NIDDM) or “Adult-Onset,” is the most common form of the disease, accounting for 90-95% of all diabetes cases. Typically it develops after age 40.  The body either cannot produce enough insulin or cannot properly use the insulin it makes. The onset can be aggravated by being overweight, inactive, and eating a diet high in sugar.
