  • "Hey....Diabetes is a disease wherein the body fails to manufacture or properly use insulin.Insulin is an agent of the blood sugars that is used as a source of energy throughout the body.Although the liver uses insulin for the storage of glycogen, a processed form of glucose. In a person with Type 2 diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or the insulin that is produced does not work properly, and the sugars are not able to get into some of the cells."

  • Diabetes Mellitus refers to the decreased function of pancreas and the insulin reactions which are caused by hereditary factors, disordered immunity, infections with microorganism and toxins, and mental factors, etc. Consequently, the metabolism of glucose, protein, fat, water and electrolyte are abnormal. In clinic, Diabetes is characterized as high blood glucose, and excessive urine, excessive thirsty and appetite, loss of weight will also appear in typical cases. When blood glucose is out of control, kidneys, eyes and feet will always have pathological changes as well and they are difficult to treat.you can see this site http://www.stemcellscn.com/diabetes/134.html

  • Diabetes occurs because the body can't use glucose properly, either owing to a lack of the hormone insulin or because the insulin available doesn't work effectively.

  • The important thing to understand about diabetes is that it occurs because of the high levels of sugar in the blood which usually is the cause of the body's lack of response to the insulin produced or inadequate amount of insulin in the body. There are many different ways of getting diabetes. One is hereditary so be careful and consult your doctor on things you can do if you have someone in the family who has diabetes.

  • Diabetes is a health condition defined by problems producing or using insulin, a hormone that helps break down food into blood glucose. Type 1 diabetes is an inherited disease that usually starts in childhood, while type 2 diabetes, which is much more common, is seen mainly in adults. A third type, gestational diabetes, occurs in pregnant women. Depending on the type of diabetes, treatment can include insulin, medication, and changing your diet and exercise habits.you can see this page maybe can give you some help:http://www.kidneyabc.com/diabetes/
