Diabetes mellitus known commonly as “Diabetes” and also “sugar” is a disease which includes a group of metabolic disorders that feature increase in blood sugar levels, hyperglycaemia.
What causes Diabetes?
Diabetes is caused due to the factors which contribute to hyperglycemia , factors are ;
- Reduced insulin secretion
- Decreased glucose utilization
- Increased glucose production
What happens in Diabetes?
Reduced Insulin Secretion : Insulin is secreted by the pancreas which is both an exocrine and endocrine gland located in the abdomen. The function of Insulin facilitates the body to utilise glucose for metabolic activities and growth. Any metabolic disorder which causes reduced insulin secretion leads to hyperglycemia condition as the glucose is left unutilised by the body.
Decreased glucose utilization : This factor is self-explanatory. Whenever the glucose in the body is not utilised, it leads to hyperglycemia. This could be due to either reduced insulin secretion and release or due to faulty lifestyle activities such as sedentary life, obesity, lack of physical exercise, improper diet etc.
Increased glucose production : Sometimes, glucose is produced within the body by the breakdown of glycogen by the process of glycogenolysis,which is stored in certain organs. And way which causes increase in glucose production is by the gluconeogenesis, conversion of non-carbohydrates such as fatty acids and proteins into glucose.

Frequently Asked Questions
What health problems can people with diabetes develop?
Over time, high blood glucose leads to problems such as
heart disease stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, dental disease, nerve damage, foot problems
You can take steps to lower your chances of developing these diabetes-related health problems.
What is the cause of type 1 diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes develops because the body’s immune system destroys beta cells in a part of the pancreas called the islet tissue. These beta cells produce glucose. So people with type 1 diabetes can’t make their own glucose. The pancreas normally adjusts the amount of glucose it makes based on your changing blood sugar.
