REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES According to Carlson (2015), diabetes mellitus refers to a group of diseases that affect how the body uses blood sugar, also known as glucose. Glucose is important to the health because it is the source of energy for the cells that make up the humans' muscles and tissues. It is also the brains' main source of fuel. However, if a person has diabetes, it means that there is too much glucose in the blood, which can lead to serious health problems. Goel (2007) shared an interesting point of view regarding the causes of diabetes.
I was an only child until I was almost three when my little sister was born. A couple of weeks before I turned eight my little brother was born. They have impacted my life way more than they realize. Being an older sister has shaped me into the person I am today in school and class, because I’ve learned how to cope with different things, learned that people like to do things their own way and I have learned how to set a good example. I have learned how to cope with things I don’t like very much being a big sister.
These mentors guide Scout through her childhood and teach her valuable lessons about how to live a good life.

After a meal, the digestion of the carbohydrates and sugars in the food releases glucose into the bloodstream. As blood glucose levels begin to rise above the set point of 5mM, the beta cells of the pancreas secrete the hormone insulin (1). The hormone sends a message to the liver that the levels of blood glucose have been detected to be too high. The liver begins the process of glycogenesis, converting glucose into glycogen. Glycogen is then stored in the liver, lowering the blood glucose levels.
Title: A case of diabetes Subject: Biology Group: 4A Name: Moldir Surname: Bizhanova Submission Date: 28.11.2017 1. Distinguish between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes by comparing and contrasting their definitions, bodily effects (complications), target groups (people affected), warning signs (early signs and symptoms) and current treatments in a table Type 1 diabetes Type 2 diabetes Definition Also called insulin-dependent diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. It is a disease of autoimmune in which pancreas’s insulin-producing beta cells are destroyed, leading to high level of glucose in the blood. (Medical Dictionary 2007) Can be called as non-insulin-dependent-diabetes. The inability of the body to respond effectively to insulin and inadequate production of insulin by the pancreas, which generally leads to the high level of glucose in the blood and to metabolism’s disfunction of proteins, fats and carbohydrates(Medical Dictionary 2007).
It is stated by Webmed that, “up to 60% of lupus patients will develop lupus nephritis. When the kidneys are inflamed, they can't function normally and can leak protein. If not controlled, lupus nephritis can lead to kidney failure.” In addition, lupus nephritis is an inflammation of the kidneys that due to the effect of
The insulin made in your body but the cells in your body do not use it effectively. This is when your body is insulin resistant. The pancreas makes more sugar for your cells to use it, but it cannot cope and eventually sugar forms in your blood instead. An average of 8 million people has diabetes and they don’t even know it. An average of 32 000 people have diabetes in South Africa between the ages of 20-79 years
This is most often the result of an autoimmune process in which the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas (Cihakova, n.d.). Since the glucose cannot enter the cells, it builds up in the blood and the body’s cells literally starve to death. People with type 1 diabetes must take insulin injections and regularly monitor blood sugar levels. Diabetes Malaysia (2006) states that there are an estimated 24,000 people with type 1 diabetes in Malaysia today and the risk of developing type 1 diabetes is higher than virtually all other severe chronic diseases of childhood. The symptoms for type 1 diabetes are alike the flu in children.
