Introduction Diabetes mellitus is the forth biggest cause of death world wide, particularly in developed and developing countries. It can cause blindness and visual impairment and many times lead to cardiovascular disease. In the case of diabetes the body does not produce insulin harmone properly. But insulin is needed by our body to convert sugar, starch and food into simple molecules which can easily enter into our body cells and provide sufficient energy for doing our daily work. Due to lack of insulin, conversion of bigger molecules of food into simpler ones is prohibited. As a result, the bigger molecules tend to accumulate in blood and hence the blood sugar level increases and a person gets diabetes disease.

Types of Diabetes There are 2 types of diabetes: type1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is diagnosed in children and young adults and is also known as juvenile diabetes. In type 1, the islet cells of the pancreas that produces insulin is seen as “enemy” by mistake.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
