Christopher 1 Taylor Christopher Professor Anderson Optimal Health (PED300/Sec. 2) December 9, 2011 Critique on Diabetes Diabetes mellitus is defined as a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has a high blood sugar. The reason of this high blood pressure can be a result from the body not producing enough insulin or from the cells not responding to the insulin produced. Diabetes is classified into three main categories known as Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational diabetes. In Type 1 diabetes, the body fails to produce insulin, and the person diagnosed is required to inject insulin. There is no way to prevent being infected from this type of diabetes. Its symp- toms develop quickly, and it is partially inherited and triggered by specific infections. Insulin resistance is responsible for Type 2 diabetes. The cells are unsuccessful in using the insulin correctly, occasionally combining with an absolute insulin deficiency. This form of diabetes can be controlled with medications, and it develops more gradually unlike Type 1. People develop Type 2 diabetes based mostly from their lifestyle factors and genetics. Cestational diabetes relates only to pregnant women who experience a high blood glucose level during pregnancy.

    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.
