The Symptoms of Diabetus Mellitus; Facts about Diabetus Mellitus

        About 2 or 3 months ago, when I came back to my hometown, my mother told me that she had gone for a medical check up a few days before. She told me that the result was good beside her her blood sugar. In the other words, she was examined that she had the tendency of having Diabetus Mellitus(not an acute one but she had the tendency). She could not believe that and neither did I. Why can't we believe that??It was because we had no history of Diabetus Mellitus in our family line. But yes, that was the fact. Perhaps, this was caused by unhealthy living pattern
or anything we could not figure out yet.
       That is why I am interested to know more about this disease. I am eager to find out more about the Diabetus Mellitus, the symptoms, cause, treatment, and anything related with Diabetus Mellitus. Well, in order to get more information about the symptoms of Diabetus Mellitus, I google any related articles about Diabetus Mellitus. Well, here are my findings that I want to share:
       I first stumbled in this site. Here, I found that Diabetus Mellitus is is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels, that result from defects in insulin or the because the cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced.
     Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas which functions to control the blood glucose level. Insulin will lower the blood glucose level when the blood glucose elevates (for example, after eating food), insulin is released from the pancreas to normalize the glucose level. That's why when someone suffers from Diabetus Mellitus, the absence or insufficient production of insulin causes hyperglycemia. 
     There are 4 common types of Diabetus Mellitus which I found from Wikipedia, they are:
  • Type 1 diabetes: results from the body's failure to produce insulin, and presently requires the person to inject insulin. (Also referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, IDDM for short, and juvenile diabetes.)
  • Type 2 diabetes: results from insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to use insulin properly, sometimes combined with an absolute insulin deficiency. (Formerly referred to as non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, NIDDM for short, and adult-onset diabetes.)
  • Gestational diabetes: is when pregnant women, who have never had diabetes before, have a high blood glucose level during pregnancy. It may precede development of type 2 DM.
  • Congenital diabetes, which is due to genetic defects of insulin secretion, cystic fibrosis-related diabetes, steroid diabetes induced by high doses of glucocorticoids, and several forms of monogenic diabetes.
      There are symptoms of Diabetus Mellitus, such as frequent urination(Polyuria), the increase of thirst(Polydipsia) and the increase of hunger(Polyphagia).
      There are several causes of Diabetes Mellitus, it depends on the type. Type 2 diabetes is due primarily to lifestyle factors and genetics.
Type 1 diabetes is also partly inherited and then triggered by certain infections.  However, even in those who have inherited the susceptibility, type 1 diabetes mellitus seems to require an environmental trigger.
       The fact that saddens me from the articles I found is that they tell that there is no cure yet for Diabetus Mellitus. Though, there need to be applied several treatments in order to maintain the blood glucose. Everyone with Diabetus Mellitus are advised to have regular exercise and do diet. Diet in here means that they must be more careful in consuming the foods. For instance, they would better not to consume foods with high glucose or even stop  consuming them. This, my mother has started to do as the doctor 's advises. She exercises every morning and drinks no more sweet drinks. Reduces nearly all the sweet foods and now replaced the sugar with the corn sugar which contains less glucose. By doing so, her blood sugar level stays stable now.
        Here, sharing you the findings and hoping that it would be useful even though there are thousands other articles out there.
