Today, we are gonna talk about a very important issue through
which people are suffering. I have seen many people around me who were being
caught by this disease. Diabetes usually attacks the people who are aged and
are above 40 but nowadays people are prone to this disease in the early stages
of their life. Recently I saw a girl who was just 15 year and had diabetes
eventually children are becoming victim of this disease. This disturbs me a lot
and I am sure a lot of you as well. We should remember always to take
precautions and avoid certain things which could initiate the possibility of
Diabetes risk factors
Diabetes is known as a chronic disease that usually occurs due
to several reasons such as if the body is unable to use blood sugar (glucose)
properly. The exact cause of this malfunction is not known however, some
genetic and environmental conditions play a vital role. Diabetes includes
several risk factors including high levels of cholesterol and obesity.
Following are some of the major risk factor which could initiate
2-Genes and Family history
Lack of insulin production
Due to lack of Insulin production in the body, it can primarily
cause of type 1 diabetes. When insulin-producing cells are destroyed or damaged
then eventually insulin stops producing. Insulin is an essential part of the
body as it is needed to move blood sugar into the cells throughout the body.
This insulin deficiency can lead to too much sugar in the blood and eventually
lead to diabetes. GENES AND
Genetics plays an important role in order to determine how
likely you are to develop some kind of diabetes. According to American Diabetes
Association, the statistics suggest that if your parent or sibling has diabetes
there are chances that it could develop inside your body too.
There are certain genetic conditions such as cystic fibrosis and
hemochromatosis both can damage pancreas which eventually leads to a higher
likelihood of developing diabetes.
According to doctor the risk of developing type 2 diabetes
escalates as your age. The risk definitely goes up as your age increases
especially after 45 which is in particular. However, the risk of diabetes is
also increasing in children and young adults. The other factors of diabetes
which initiate due to age include decreased muscle mass, reduced exercise, and
weight gain as you age. If talking about type 1 diabetes it usually occurs at
the age of 30.
Obesity is another factor which initiates diabetes due to excess
body fat. Inflammation can be caused due to fatty tissues which can lead to
insulin resistance and eventually diabetes. There are certain overweight people
who never develop diabetes.
Diet is an important aspect of health if you intake healthy diet
you will live a healthy life. Certainly, your diet plays an important role in
diabetes furthermore, poor nutrition or high-calorie diet, cholesterol, and fat
increase resistance to insulin.
HORMONAL CHANGES OR CONDITIONS
There are certain hormonal conditions which can lead to diabetes
but are rear. The hormonal conditions which can lead to insulin resistance
include, Cushing’s Syndrome, Acromegaly, and Hyperthyroidism.
