Type two diabetes is the most common type of diabetes; it affects 85-90% of people who have a form of diabetes. Although it is known to be more common in adults, more and more children and babies are being diagnosed. The pancreas of those People who suffer type 2 diabetes makes limited insulin, but doesn’t produce enough to enable the body to function effectively. Diabetes is a result of generic and environmental factors. The risk of diabetes type two is greatly increased by lifestyle factors such as; overweight, lack of exercise, poor diet and high blood pressure.
What is hyperglycemia? Hyperglycemia is the technical term for high blood glucose (blood sugar). High blood glucose happens when the body has too little insulin or when the body can't use insulin properly. What Cause Hyperglycemia? A number of things can cause hyperglycemia: If you have type 1, you may not have given yourself enough insulin.
Type II diabetes mainly occurs when an adult catches an onset of diabetes. Although it is not limited to adults Type II diabetes has been found in teenagers and in some children. Type II diabetes is when the cells don’t produce enough insulin or when the cells of the body completely ignore the insulin that is being made from the pancreas. Even though, Type I and Type II are both considered a form of diabetes, they differ so much that doctors have theorized that they are actually two different diseases. However, they have one thing in common, they both encounter that there is too much sugar in the
Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 diabetes develops when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin. As a result the body is unable to produce insulin and this leads to increased blood glucose levels, which in turn can cause serious damage to all organ systems in the body. Often referred to as juvenile diabetes, type 1 diabetes is a form of diabetes mellitus that is most common in children but can be diagnosed at any age. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that permanently destroys beta cells in the pancreas, meaning that the body can no longer produce insulin. People with type 1 diabetes therefore require regular insulin delivery to manage their diabetes.
Wohltman 1 Amanda Wohltman Mrs. Hatfield Pre- AP English II 30 April 2015 How does malnutrition physically affect the body? Malnutrition is a lack of sufficient nutrients in the body. Malnutrition is usually obtained when a person does not get enough food; not only do they not get enough food, but they do not get nutritious food which is very important for one’s health. This has many negative effects on the body (see Fig.1). Some of the effects are a decline in muscle function, reduction in cardiac muscle mass, and a worsened immune system.
The reason for the syndrome is unknown, but researchers think that disruption of the development of the fetus leads to the problems to develop. The precise cause of Prune-Belly syndrome isn't known. Ulcerative colitis is thought to be an auto-immune condition. While constipation is a rather basic digestive problem, it is going to occur differently for different folks, simply because no 2 people have the same kind of bowel movement. Chronic constipation was attributed to a reduction in abdominal wall pressure, which is crucial to aid in
Lastly, the brain can shrink due to anorexia nervosa, with the possibility of not having a full recovery. Even a small change in “eating behavior during adolescence is associated with adverse health outcomes later in life” (Treasure section 2). The editor of the Nation Review, Fred Schwartz, disagrees, instead saying that eating disorders are rooted in genetic and physiological conditions. He also argues that eating disorders have been present long before
This is called insulin resistance. According to Wong Lai Teng, “Insulin resistance is caused by defective insulin receptors on the target cells.” She goes on to state, “Insulin resistance occurs in association with obesity and pregnancy. In normal individuals who are obese or become pregnant, the B cells secrete increased amounts of insulin to compensate. Patients who have genetic susceptibility to diabetes cannot compensate because of their inherent defect in insulin secretion.” In both types 1 and 2 diabetes will show signs and symptoms, although, in type 2 diabetes, they may not be apparent for some
corticoids and antidepressants.Previously considered as an aesthetic problem, obesity is now regarded as a real illness. Being severely overweight and obesity are responsible for a certain number of problems e.g. Premature death – according to international obesity task force (IOTF) obese women run three times more risk of being affected by a cerebral vascular illness than thin women. There is a high risk of thromboembolic diseases (angina pectoris, phlebitis and pulmonary embolism).Arterial Hypertension - is linked to obesity in 30-60% of cases, notably in western adults under the age of 40. Type 2 Diabetes – this diabetes which appears in adults, and where insulin, which reduces blood sugar levels, is no longer effective is closely linked with being overweight.
Part One Diabetes Diabetes is a life-long disease. In our body, the components of food are broken down into glucose, which then the body uses as an energy supply. In a person with diabetes, the body struggles to breakdown the glucose. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas to help the body to breakdown glucose into energy (ATP). Often people with diabetes have a very low amount of insulin or none at all, so their body is unable to breakdown the components.
