Cause of Diabetes

I wanna know about cause if diabetes.


    • Diabetes is a complex group of diseases with a variety of causes. Scientists believe genes and environmental factors interact to cause diabetes in most cases.People with diabetes have high blood glucose, also called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia. Diabetes develops when the body doesn’t make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.Insulin is a hormone made by beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin helps cells throughout the body absorb and use glucose for energy. If the body does not produce enough insulin or cannot use insulin effectively, glucose builds up in the blood instead of being absorbed by cells in the body, and the body is starved of energy.
  • As Violet141 said above insuline is the key word while talking about diabetes and all the civilization diseases :/ People 30-40 years ago used to eat better quality food - less fast food and less sugar and there were single examples of such diseases :) You can find some interesting articles about that online :)
