Diabetology is the clinical science of diabetes mellitus, its diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up.
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder when the body releases the hormone insulin which is supposed to be used by the body but it can not process it effectively. As a result, insulin in the blood increases resulting in diabetes.
There are various types of diabetes such as Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune reaction where the insulin is mistakenly killed by the enzymes of our body. Hence, it decreases the insulin production and increases the consumption of blood sugar.
Type 2 diabetes the production of insulin is less in quantity or the cells fail to use the blood sugar efficiently. Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common diabetes.
Gestational diabetes is a temporary disorder that occurs during pregnancy and gets resolved after pregnancy. However, there is always a risk for the future for the mother might get diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
