Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic disorders in which high blood-sugar levels over prolonged periods of time cause nerve damage. In diabetes, the pancreas either does not produce enough insulin, or the body not responding properly to the insulin produced. There are three types of diabetes, including:

Type 1 Diabetes or Type 1 DM – . An autoimmune condition where the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin. Type 1 diabetes seems to have a genetic component, and there are links with other autoimmune disorders such as Crohn’s disease. Diabetic ketoacidosis is an unpleasant and sometimes even fatal side-effect of type-1 diabetes, which can cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
Type 2 Diabetes or Type 2 DM – The more common type of diabetes, most often caused by a bad diet and a lack of exercise. In some instances, long-term use of steroids can cause steroid-induced diabetes. Type 2 diabetes involves insulin resistance. This is when cells fail to respond to insulin properly. A lack of insulin may also develop as the condition progresses.
Gestational Diabetes – a type of diabetes that develops in pregnant women who otherwise have no history of diabetes.

Symptoms of diabetes and high blood sugar include frequent urination, sugar found in the urine due to malabsorption of glucose, skin rashes called “diabetic dermadromes”, increased thirst and increased hunger. As of 2015, an estimated 415 million people worldwide have diabetes of some form of diabetes, with 90% of cases being Type 2 Diabetes, making it one of the world’s most pressing health problems.
