Diabetes mellitus

Widespread common disease

In common parlance, this metabolic disorder is simply known as diabetes. The two common types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2, have different causes. Both cause elevated blood glucose levels, which greatly increase the risk of numerous secondary diseases.

Diabetes Type 1

Cause: Insulin deficiency

Type 1 diabetics usually produce no insulin at all or only small amounts. Due to the lack of the messenger substance, the body’s cells absorb too little glucose from the blood. Heart attacks, strokes, damage to the retina and nerves, kidney disease, periodontitis, skin disorders and even depression are among the numerous secondary diseases that can result from excess blood glucose.

Usual treatment

The insulin deficit can be compensated by applying artificial insulin for life.

Diabetes Type 2

Cause: Insulin resistance

In type 2 diabetics, sufficient insulin is present in the early stage. However, the sensitivity of the cells to the messenger substance has decreased. As a result, the cells absorb vital sugar inadequately. The progressive insulin resistance is compensated for by a growing output of messenger substance. As soon as the amount of insulin produced is no longer sufficient, the familiar symptoms of diabetes mellitus appear.

Usual treatment

Most sufferers can already positively influence the process of insulin production by changing their lifestyle. A balanced diet and physical activity influence the metabolism of the whole organism.
