Ideal blood glucose is 4-5 mmol / liter of blood, normal to 5.6 mmol / liter of blood, slightly elevated levels of 5.6 mmol / liter of blood to 7 mmol / L of blood, but over 7 mmol / liter of blood is a sign of disease known diabetes. It occurs when the pancreas is little insulin or when the monster is no insulin or when insulin is produced but the body does not respond to it. Then the sugar in the blood unable to burn.
Distinguish diabetes first type and second type. The first type occurs when the pancreas does not insulin, often arises in childhood, as a result of immune disorders. Even common cold leads in this case to cause chaos in the defense – the body creates antibodies and mistakenly focuses their attention on his own pancreatic beta cells that can form insulin properly. If this process goes quickly and the disease is likely to take clinical symptoms of diabetes are finding high levels of sugar in the blood, usually it’s too late – a process that ultimately destroys the beta cells and has no other way than injecting insulin.
A role played by hereditary predisposition, but it should be noted that this helps make the strong trend in today’s hectic life, increasingly weakened immune system and other risk factors. Diabetes II. type is that the forms of insulin but the body is unable to use it. This type of suffering in the Czech Republic about 650 000 people. Preponderance of factors such as obesity, lack of exercise, poor food and song, of course, genetic condition. The term epidemic of diabetes is snappy.
First, the type I
If an individual has available to diabetes does not mean that the disease must always be given. With that hereditary predisposition is also a man inherits his living habits, diet and other trends that do indeed lead to trigger the disease. It starts of the disease, as described above, is not just that simple. But – what does it mean? immune system actually failed, either virus was very aggressive, or simply no longer at this time was sick, weak, exhausted by previous infections that were treated with antibiotics, intestinal symbiosis generated, vaccine-existing allergies , stress or other discomfort.
The patient and his family are experiencing life-defining moment; after all, diabetes is diabetes and gradually coming to terms with this “destiny”. But there are still unanswered questions raised – those antibodies have finally destroyed beta cells or are still some that work? In its essence, since the start of that is – about time!
Technique of insulin and stabilize the state is clear but the situation is not clear about stopping the autoimmune process. Here medicine is lagging behind, I often see the doctor shut the folder and says “Diabetes – insulin, we can not do anything else” and the process that should alarm immunity to calm, with no cares – closed – unable to do anything about it. There are studies, there are first signs of a solution, but it’s slow – a huge amount of funding going to progress in the treatment of diabetes – we know about insulin pumps, we know of the existence of inhaled insulin – we have developed control mechanisms, but the direction in immunomodulation has seriously – shame.
Man it brings to the idea, even if there is an effort by politicians, industrialists and research, because if this diabetes cured by timely correct the immune system mistakenly reacts, then it might not even realize this type of diabetes, and then the man would not need lifetime buy insulin and other resources needed to treat. In other words, there would be no “Diabetic Industry.”
And what next?
Thus, antibodies that they finally destroy the beta cells and that this person will have to take insulin, it ends? Now there is talk about the consequences of diabetes – a statistical reduction in life expectancy, blindness, leg amputation, double the risk of heart attack and stroke. In addition, the voice of the issue: And the autoimmune cause of the stop? Or will the next? Which body attacks now? Described causal chain continues.
