Diabetes mellitus is a chronic endocrine disorder, characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from absolute or relative insulin deficiency. There are a number of different causes of diabetes but by far the majority of cases are classified as either type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

The pathophysiology of type 1 diabetes derives from the autoimmune destruction of insulin-secreting pancreatic β-cells, resulting in insulin deficiency and subsequent hyperglycemia. Type 1 diabetes accounts for about 10-15% of all diabetics. Type II diabetes is characterized by abnormal insulin secretion due to peripheral resistance and accounts for 85-90% of all persons with diabetes. While type I diabetes usually manifests itself in childhood or adolescence and type 2 diabetes at a later stage, clinical manifestation and progression vary considerably and some patients might not be clearly classified as having either type 1 or 2 initially. Type 1 diabetes may occur at any age and with late onset usually shows slower progression, and type 2 manifests itself more and more often earlier in life, even in childhood and adolescence, sometimes allowing for accurate diagnosis only over time.

In the uncontrolled state, both types of diabetes are characterized by increased hepatic glucose output and decreased glucose uptake in the muscles and adipose tissue. Patients with type 1 diabetes are at risk of severe lipolysis leading to diabetic ketoacidosis. The remaining insulin activity in type 2 diabetes usually inhibits lipolysis and ketone production such that these patients are less likely to develop ketoacidosis but are more likely to develop a hyperosmolar, non-ketotic state.

Worldwide, the incidence and prevalence of diabetes continues to rise due to both an increasing incidence of type I diabetes in children, and of type 2 diabetes, due to lifestyle changes particularly in developing countries.

Diabetes characteristically presents with a history of symptoms and signs associated with hyperglycaemia: polydipsia, polyuria, polyphagia (hyperglycaemic triad), weight loss, fatigue, skin and genital itching, dry mouth, stomatitis, visual disturbances, poor wound healing, recurrent infections, arrhythmia, confusion and (in men) erectile dysfunction and balanitis. It should be noted however that type II diabetes is often asymptomatic and identified through targeted screening programs. A broad spectrum of vague symptoms including lethargy, nausea, blurred vision and recalcitrant fungal or bacterial infections may be the first early clues. Diabetes may also present as an acute hyperglycaemic crisis manifested by stupor, coma, or seizures

Diabetes problems can damage parts of the body such as the

● Heart

● Blood vessel

● Eyes

● Kidneys

● Nerves

Heart and blood vessel disease can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Nerve damage can lead to a loss of feeling in the feet, which may lead to an amputation. You will want to take steps to prevent these diabetes problems.

The primary goal of diabetes therapy is to keep plasma glucose levels as close to normal as possible without causing hypoglycaemia. Good control of plasma glucose helps to protect against the long term complications of diabetes, through lifestyle and diet modification.

Studies have shown that there was significant reduction in the incidence of type II Diabetes with a combination of maintenance of body mass index of 25 kg/m2, eating high fibre and unsaturated fat and diet low in saturated and trans-fats and glycaemic index, regular exercise, abstinence from smoking and moderate consumption of alcohol, suggesting that majority of type II Diabetes can be prevented by lifestyle modification. Patients with type II Diabetes should receive a medical nutrition evaluation; lifestyle recommendations should be tailored according to physical and functional ability
