Diabetology & Metabolic Diseases
Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose is too high. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough or any insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells. Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause health problems. Although diabetes has no cure, you can take steps to manage your diabetes and stay healthy. The most common types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1-your body does not make insulin. Your immune system attacks and destroys the cells in your pancreas that make insulin. Type 2- your body does not use insulin well. It is the most common type of diabetes. Gestational diabetes develops in some women when they are pregnant. Most of the time, this type of diabetes goes away after the baby is born.
