Is Diabetes making your life bitter?
Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disease characterized by increase in the level of sugar in blood; hyperglycemia, resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both. The chronic hyperglycemia of diabetes is associated with long term damage, dysfunction and failure of various organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and blood vessels. The basis of the abnormalities in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism in diabetes is deficient action of insulin on target tissues. Deficient insulin action results from inadequate insulin secretion and/or diminished tissues responses to insulin at one or more point in the complex pathways of hormone of action. Impairment of insulin secretion and defects in insulin action frequently coexist in the same patient, and it is often unclear which abnormality if either alone, is the primary cause of hyperglycemia.
