NURSING PROCESS FORMAT Introduction to diabetes Diabetes is the inability of the body to control the blood sugar level. High blood sugar levels are known as hyperglycemia this is controlled by the hormone insulin. So having diabetes means there is interference with the creation and secretion of insulin. There three types of diabetes Type 1 diabetes This first type of diabetes is known as Type 1 diabetes, what it means is that the person with it is insulin dependent mellitus or has juvenile diabetes. It can be called juvenile because of the age it is often acquired. It is not common to get Type 1 diabetes when you have past your mid 20's. This type of diabetes is also known as autoimmune disorder. That means the body destroys cells that produce the insulin the reason for this is that it thinks that it is harmful to the body. The cells are called the beta cells that are found in the islet cells and are found in the pancreas. When the insulin producing cells get destroyed blood sugar levels are not able to be regulated by the body so insulin has to be injected into the body to perform this function. Type 2 diabetes The second type of diabetes or Type 2 diabetes, which is sometimes also known as adult onset diabetes, this is because it was commonly found to occur in later life. It is caused by insulin resistance. Beta cells in the pancreas continue to produce insulin but the body needs more insulin than secreted to process the glucose or the insulin is less effective in converting glucose into glycogen and thus reducing the blood sugar level. It is not completely verified why Type 2 diabetes happens, being overweight seems to be a common condition of most people that have Type 2 diabetes. There is a theory that a lifestyle of eating unhealthy foods with out taking regular or adequate exercise could contribute to causing this disease. it is also believed that type 2 diabetes can be hereditary, although the most documented advice on avoiding type 2 diabetes is to lose weight, eat healthily and do more exercise.
