Types of Diabetes
What are the types of diabetes?
Diabetes is a chronic condition resulting in high blood sugar levels, because of the impaired glucose regulation in the body. After having food, our digestive system breakdowns the food into glucose and other nutrients that are released into blood. Insulin is a key hormone produced by the pancreas and responsible for glucose uptake from the blood to the cells for their functioning. Thus, glucose serves as a fuel for the human body and is required for all voluntary processes like playing, working, etc. and involuntary processes like heart functioning, digestion, blood circulation, etc. Absence of insulin or decreased sensitivity of the body cells to insulin results in diabetes.
