  • 1. Diabetes Mellitus Prepared by : Aini Najihah Bt Nasurudin Aifaa Anira Bt Anuar 1
  • 2. Contents 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Introduction and definition Aetiology and causes Pathosiology Investigation Signs and symptoms Complications Doctor’s management 2
  • 3. Introduction Diabetes Mellitus Insipidus 3
  • 4.  Most common is diabetes mellitus.  Definition: excessively high levels of blood sugar(glucose), and the presence of glucose in the urine.  The term diabetes mellitus describes as a metabolic disorder of multiple aetiology characterized by chronic hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar) with disturbances of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism resulting on effects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both  It is estimated that in 2010 there were globally 285 million people (approximately 6.4% of the adult population) suffering from this disease. 4
  • 5. There are 3 types of Diabetes mellitus 1. Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus 2. Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus 3. Gestational diabetes 5
  • 6. Aetiology • Factors of the disease:  Gender -for type II commonly attack men more than women  Aging -usually at age 45 years, will rise considerably at age 65 years  Environmental disease -unavoidable virus infection -too much stress -high alcohol intake 6
  • 7.  Heredity i) Parents -have diabetes type II, the kids will inherit it. -If both parents have type I, the risk of the kids to inherit are less 20% ii) Identical Twins -if one twin develops Type II diabetes, the other twin chances is almost 100% will develop it. -In Type I diabetes, only 40 to 50% of the second twins will develop the disease if other twin have it. 7
  • 8. Causes  Type I Diabetes mellitus most common caused by three area :  Heredity  Viral infection  Severe physical and emotional stress 8
  • 9.  o o o Type II Diabetes Mellitus caused by Heredity more stronger causes. Obesity Lack of exercise 9
  • 10. Pathophysiology Type I Diabetes  Insulitis :Disease of the pancreas caused by the infiltration of lymphocytes  Lobules containing heavily infiltrated islets seen adjacent to unaffected lobules  Beta cells destroyed: the glucagon and other hormone-secreting cells in the islet remaining intact  No insulin is available 10
  • 11. Type II Diabetes  Insulin resistance : Insulin become less effective at lowering blood sugars  Leads to raised up insulin secretion in order to maintain normal blood glucose levels  Pancreatic B-cells unable to sustain the increased demand for insulin and slowly progressive insulin deficiency develops  Pancreatic B-cells failure 11
  • 12. Investigation      Urinalysis for ketones Glycated hemoglobin (A1C) test Random blood sugar level Fasting blood sugar level Oral glucose tolerance test 12
  • 13. Symptom 13
  • 14. Sign & Symptom  Type 1  Type 2 i. ii. iii. iv. v. vi. Increased thirst Increased urination Weight loss Blurred vision Extreme tiredness Constant hunger i. Unusual Thirst ii.

  • 15. Complication 15
  • 16. Complication  Heart & Blood Vessel Disease -coronary artery disease, chest pain, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure  Nerve Damage -injured capillaries that nourish nerve, loss sense of feeling in affected limb  Kidney Damage -kidney failure, damage blood vessel clusters that filter waste from blood  Eye Damage -Blindness, Glaucoma, Cataracts 16
  • 17. Complication  Foot damage -cuts and blister can become serious infection, leg amputation  Skin & mouth condition -fungal infection, Gum infection  Pregnancy complication -miscarriage, dangerous for both  Hearing problem 17
  • 18. Doctor’s Management 18
  • 19. Doctor’s Management  Type 1 i. Insulin Injections ii. Dietary plan iii. Regular check up of blood sugar levels iv. Daily exercise v. prevent/treat chronic complications vi. Enhance health with food/PA  Type 2 i. Diet ii. Exercise for weight loss iii. Insulin Injections may also be used 19
