Diabetes refers to a disease in which the body’s ability to produce or respond to insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood.
- Type 1 diabetes
- Type 2 diabetes
- Pre-diabetes and
- Gestational diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is also known as Juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes. It is due to autoimmune destruction of pancreatic beta cells responsible for insulin production, typically leading to a lack of insulin.
Type 2 diabetes is Adult onset diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes. In Type 2 diabetes the cells in the body fail to take up the free glucose circulating in the blood due to insulin resistance leading to abnormally high levels of glucose in the blood (hyperglycemia).
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is caused by pregnancy and is often diagnosed in middle or late pregnancy.

Endocrinology is a branch of physiology and medicine concerned with endocrine glands and hormones. The doctors who are specialist in dealing with endocrine gland disorders and functions are called as Endocrinologists. Diabetes is a chronic disease which occurs when the beta cells of pancreas fail to produce insulin, or when the body cannot make proper use of the insulin it produces.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a type of diabetes occurs during pregnancy and is associated with complications to both mother and fetus. Gestational diabetes occurs due to insufficient production of insulin in the body needed for pregnancy. As a result, glucose builds up in the blood to high levels leading to hyperglycemia. Gestational diabetes occur late pregnancy, after the baby's body has been designed and hence does not cause birth defects.

Diabetic patients are prone to having foot problems, because of two complications of diabetes: first one nerve damage (neuropathy) and second one poor circulation. Neuropathy leads to cause loss of feeling in your feet, taking away your ability to feel discomfort and pain, so you are unable to detect an injury or irritation in your foot. Poor blood circulation in your feet reduces your ability to heal, making it hard for even a tiny cut to resist infection.

Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) refers to condition in which acids buildup in the blood of patient due to prolonged hyperglycemia due to type 1 or type 2 Diabetes. DKA can be life threatening. Symptoms include dry mouth, feeling thirsty, urinating more often, fruity smell in breath due to excessive levels of Ketones in blood.

Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHNS) is a complication of diabetes mellitus in which uncontrolled blood sugar results in high osmolarity without significant ketoacidosis.

Diabetic nephropathy is a renal complication associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It is also known diabetic kidney disease. Diabetic nephropathy affects the ability of your kidneys to filter and remove waste products form blood due to damage to glomeruli of kidneys. The best way to avoid or delay diabetic nephropathy is healthy lifestyle and proper treatment of diabetes and Hypertension.

Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can occur in diabetic patients due to high sugar levels in the body. It most often damages nerves in legs and feet. Symptoms include numbness, tingling or burning sensation, sharp pains and cramps, muscle weakness, loss of reflexes etc.

Overtime diabetes causes certain eye complications and diseases like diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, visual impairment, poor vision, Glaucoma, Macular edema etc.,
Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that affects your eyes. Diabetic Retinopathy caused by damaging retina of your eye (Sensitive tissue of eye). At earlier stage, diabetic retinopathy may cause only mild vision problems but eventually, it can cause blindness. Diabetes Retinopathy condition can develop in anyone who has type 1 or type 2 diabetes Mellitus. If you have diabetes from longer time and less controlled your blood sugar levels then there are more chances to develop this eye complication.

People suffering from diabetes may develop cardiovascular diseases if their condition is not managed well for a long period of time. High levels of glucose in blood (Hyperglycemia), which characterizes diabetes, in combination with free fatty acids (hyperlipidemia) within the blood can alter the character of blood vessels, and this can lead to heart disease. Vascular disorders include coronary artery disease (CAD), hypertension, peripheral vascular disease (PVD), and heart stroke.

Diabetics are more prone to developing oral complications than healthy individuals. The dental and gum diseases associated with diabetes including gingivitis, periodontitis, bacterial and fungal infections, dry mouth, loose teeth, tooth decay, bad breath etc. Prolonged levels of blood glucose can lead to developing or worsening of dental infections.

Also referred to as Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), this procedure of treatment, which is not a part of standard medical care, have been found to be beneficial for many individuals with diabetes. Such treatments include Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Ayurvedic Medicine, Aromatherapy, relaxation therapy, etc. Some of these therapies aim at treating the body and the mind and are also helpful for relaxing and relieving stress.
