Causes of Diabetes Diabetes is a group of diseases that is marked by high levels of glucose, or sugar, in the blood. The increased amount sugar in the blood is a result of either defects in the production of insulin or the way in which insulin is used by the body. Complications from diabetes can result in further medical conditions that make it even more difficult to treat the diabetes, such as kidney failure, peripheral vascular disease or heart disease. Type 1 diabetes is the result of a lack of insulin production because of the destruction of beta cells in the pancreas.
Townsend Harris High School Maryum Begum Band 4: Anatomy & Physiology 12/16/15 Diabetes Type I Type I diabetes is a chronic disease in which the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. This means that an individual who has type I diabetes cannot produce their own insulin. Insulin is essential for the body to break down the sugar, glucose, to convert it to energy. With the lack of insulin, this sugar is not broken down and results in further health problems.
What is diabetes? I’m pretty sure that most of you at least once have heard about this disease, but probably not all of you are familiar to what it really is, how it’s caused and how it can damage human’s health. Diabetes is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin itself is a hormone needed to allow glucose to enter body cells for energy production.
In a diabetic person, the procedure between insulin and glucose is broken. This causes the sugar level in the body to rise to dangerous levels. Diabetes affects the heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and skin. If unchecked, diabetes will lead to dehydration, coma, and even death. Even when checked, diabetes can still lead to blindness, heart diseases, strokes, and vascular diseases.
Diabetes is a long-term disease that cause high blood sugar levels. I Have chosen this disease becuase my father has this disease so I am a little familiar with it. Below I will explain to you the two types of diabetes, healthful behaviors you can do to avoid diabetes and possible treatments for the disease. Diabetes have no symptoms but they do come in two types. Type 1 diabetes can go unnoticed but is less likely to do so.
Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Many complications can arise with Type 2 Diabetes. The question we must ask ourselves is whither there is a possibility of preventing these complications and Type 2 Diabetes before it occurs. Moreover type 2 diabetes is a considerable reason for untimely mortality and distress, because of cardiovascular, renal, ophthalmic, and neurological disorders (The Diabetes Prevention Program, 1999). In spite of the fact that treatment of type 2 diabetes can enhance hyperglycemia, standardization of glycemia and glycohemoglobin is hardly accomplished or managed (The Diabetes Prevention Program, 1999). The purpose of this paper is to discuss the problem statement, purpose and research questions, literature review and conceptual
PURPOSE At the end of this presentation, the audience will be informed on how acupuncture works in treating diabetes. INTRODUCTION In normal body mechanism, consumed carbohydrates pass through stomach and enter blood stream to body’s fat and muscle cells. However sugar cannot enter these cells without the help from insulin ¬– a hormone allowing sugar to enter into mentioned body’s cells.
Individual emotional and physical choices play a crucial role in health and even more so in lower socio-economic neighborhoods. The biological level in terms of diabetes would be the genetic influence Cockerham (2013) addressed. The biological element at play is the TCF7L2 variant gene. This gene increases the diabetes risk but depends on heredity. However, presence itself doesn’t mean diabetes.
The cause of spina bifida is still a mystery. Scientist say that there are many reasons for this birth defect. Genetic nutritional, environmental factors, lack of folic acid and taking new medications are all known causes. Valproate and carbamazepine are 2 types of medication that cause spina bifida. Obesity and diabetes due to excess glucose in the blood messing with the baby’s development are some more causes.
Join Us! Every year, 1.4 million new cases of diabetes are being diagnosed among the American people. This is why now is more important than ever to join the American Diabetes Association to take action against the ugly face of diabetes. As the American Diabetes Association our mission statement is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all of the people affected by diabetes.
In the book “Diabetes among the Pima: Stories of Survival”, the author, Smith-Morris states that more than any other population in the world, an American Indian tribe from the Southwest United States , also known as The Pima have the highest chance of having risks for type 2 diabetes. She also continues to argue in the book that the issue is not just a biomedical mater but something even larger. By living with the Pimas and studying the experiences, daily life, and views of Pima pregnant women over a decade, the author identified factors that are overlooked by research and interventions related to biomedical. In the process of studying the Pimas, the author also learn that both the indigenous population and the health care providers impact the social and cultural aspects in the community. The book took place in the Gila River
Annotated Bibliography: The Manifestation of Type Two Diabetes in Relation to Obesity Adaeze Okere Kennesaw State University Annotated Bibliography: The Manifestation of Type Two Diabetes in Relation to Obesity As a nurse extern, one of my jobs is to make sure that I check blood sugars at 0730, 1230, and 1700 for my diabetic patients. One week, I had five different diabetic patients, both men and women, all obese. One particular patient that caught my attention, a man, was exceedingly overweight; he was around 162kg.
