It is believed that one or several viruses be capable to attack the pancreas, the gland that creates insulin. In turn that virus is then attacked by body’s body’s defence mechanism. Now if your virus includes a substance that comes about naturally inside pancreas, the immune system’s antibodies that fight the herpes virus will then also affect this substance inside pancreas, with the same consequences as when the virus had attacked the pancreas directly.
Just like every other disease, this juvenile condition also offers its own pair of symptoms. These manifestations are essential especially through the diagnosing stage. These symptoms can take place suddenly and will include polyuria or excessive urination, polyphagia or tremendous hunger, polydypsia or excessive thirst, blurring of vision, sudden weight loss, severe fatigue and weakness, nocturnal enuresis or night voiding, difficulty of breathing, lethargy and fruity breath. These symptoms can also be common signs and symptoms of other illnesses. The most definitive way of determining juvenile or type 1 diabetes would be through tests of the blood sugar levels.
Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because most of its symptoms seem so harmless. Recent studies indicate that this early detection of diabetes symptoms and treatment can reduce the chance of developing the complications of diabetes. The signs of diabetes may develop extremely quickly (over weeks or perhaps days) in kids or adolescents who had previously been exhibiting signs and symptoms of health. However, in adults over the day of 40 the symptoms can be shown very gradually.
Causes of diabetes mellitus can be blamed mainly to genetics. Doctors diagnose diabetes by measuring blood sugar levels. Treatment may include insulin (through tablets or injection), transplant of pancreas though the latter has been shown with limited success. If not treated properly, diabetes mellitus can bring about dysfunctional organs and finally, to death.
Type 2 diabetes can be particularly scary because it’s so common and as a result of what it could do on the human body. Blindness, lack of limbs, kidney failure, cardiovascular disease, strokes, are typical things that can be caused by diabetes. The disease itself may be brought about by way of a poor diabetic diet, obesity and heredity.
