Diabetes mellitus – endocrine disease is characterized by a chronic increase in blood sugar levels due to absolute or relative insulin deficiency – pancreatic hormone. The disease leads to disruption of all types of metabolism, vascular damage, nervous system and other organs and systems.
Insulin-dependent diabetes (type 1 diabetes) occurs mainly in children and young people;
Non-insulin-dependent diabetes (type 2 diabetes) usually develops in people over 40 years who are overweight. This is the most common type of disease (found in 80-85% of cases);
Secondary (or symptomatic) diabetes;
Diabetes caused by malnutrition
In type 1 diabetes there is an absolute insulin deficiency due to a violation of the pancreas work.
The main reason for type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune process due to failure of the immune system, in which the body produces antibodies against pancreatic cells, destroying them. The main factor that provokes the appearance of type 1 diabetes, is a viral infection (rubella, chicken pox, hepatitis, mumps…) on the background of genetic susceptibility to the disease.

Glucoses is the main cause of excessive weight gain: if we didn’t have glucoses, we wouldn’t put on weight.
