This condition is called insulin resistance.People with a family history of obesity are at risk of diabetes type 2.Insulin becomes important for people who are obese and their weight is increasing abnormally to keep their sugar levels normal.

Why do we get Type 2 Diabetes ?

Obesity gives rise to many diseases, one of them is diabetes, so it is important for everyone not to let obesity on their body. It is important to control your obesity. Poor nutrition can lead to diabetes type 2, people who eat sweets made of sugar or good, junk food, fast food, cold drinks etc. irregularly fall victim to this disease. Because when you eat more sweet things, the amount of glucose starts increasing in the body. Due to disturbance in the pancreas, the quantity of insulin starts to decrease, due to which there is a problem in glucose metabolism, which causes diabetes.

Insulin Resistance

Man needs energy to work. Human beings get this energy from protein carbohydrates and fatty food. Everything we eat is converted into glucose and glucose enters the cell where food is converted into energy. Insulin determines the pathway for glucose to enter the cell, a hormone secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas.

Insulin is a key that opens the cell door. If our body is low in insulin or not, then glucose cannot open the door that enters the cell, causing glucose levels in the blood to be elevated when there is not enough insulin to open the lock of the glucose in the blood. Gets collected which does not turn into energy. High levels of glucose in the blood cause serious problems in the body. This condition is called insulin resistance.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is a condition in which your pancreas does not produce insulin properly, your body needs insulin to maintain blood sugar levels. When you eat foods, the small intestine chemicals break them down into single sugars molecules called glucose. The cells of the small intestine then absorb glucose, which then passes into the bloodstream.

When the blood reaches your pancreas, the beta cells inside the pancreas detect increased levels of glucose, and the beta cells secrete insulin, which causes glucose levels in the bloodstream to decrease and your blood sugar reaches to a healthy limit.

Most cells of the body have some receptors on the surface that bind to circulating insulin. Insulin acts like a key to open the cell so that circulating glucose can enter the cell. Now body cells can utilize the glucose to produce the energy it needs to function properly. If you have type one diabetes, your pancreatic beta cells lose their ability to produce insulin, resulting in high blood sugar levels and other complications.

In type 1 diabetes, your immune system begins to mistake your pancreatic beta cells specifically for your white blood cells, foreign invaders. As a result, in an auto immune response, your white blood cells secrete auto antibodies that destroy your own beta cells.

Because of which your pancreas is unable to produce very little or no insulin. Without insulin, glucose cannot get into your cells, so they starve for the calories they should have gotten from glucose.In addition, the level of glucose in your bloodstream increases, resulting in a condition called hyperglycemia. This disease usually occurs in children and young people, so it is also called juvenile diabetes or insulin dependent diabetes.
