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

  1. 1. Diabetes
  2. 2. What is Diabetes? • Diabetes is a condition where the amount of glucose in your blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly. • This is because your pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin, or not enough insulin, to help glucose enter your body’s cells – or the insulin that is produced does not work properly
  3. 3. What is Insulin? • Insulin is the hormone created by the pancreas that allows glucose to go into the body’s cells, where it is used as fuel for power so we can work, play and usually live our lives. It is essential for life. • Glucose comes from digesting carbohydrate and is also produced by the liver
  4. 4. Continue… • If you have diabetes, your body cannot make proper use of this glucose so it builds up in the blood and can’t be used as fuel. • Insulin serves as a “key” to open your cells, to allow the glucose to enter -- and allow you to use the glucose for energy
  5. 5. Types of Diabetes • There are mainly 2 types of Diabetes: Type 1 Type 2
  6. 6. Type 1 Diabetes • Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes. • It is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young adults. • This diabetes is rarely found in Old age People.
  7. 7. Continue.. • In Type 1 Diabetes the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin because the body's immune system has attacked and destroyed them. • About 5 to 10 percent of people with diabetes have type 1 diabetes.
  8. 8. Type 2 diabetes • Type 2 diabetes, also called as adult-onset diabetes or non insulin-dependent diabetes. • Type 2 Diabetes is the most common form of Diabetes. • People can get Type 2 Diabetes In any age of their life, Even in Childhood also.
  9. 9. Signs of Diabetes • Most of the people with diabetes feel one or more telling symptoms, including extreme thirst or hunger. • a frequent need to urinate and/or fatigue. • Some lose weight without trying.
