November, Diabetes Awareness Month/Information Share


Since November is a month where we recognize Diabetes, and I am a Diabetic, I will try to post more this month on Diabetes and things of that nature.

Some things you might or might not know about Diabetes…

CLASSIFICATION Diabetes can be classified into the following general categories:
1. Type1 diabetes (due to auto immune b-cell destruction, usually leading to absolute insulin deficiency)

2. Type 2 diabetes (due to a progressive loss of b-cell insulin secretion frequently on the background of insulin resistance)

3. Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) (diabetes diagnosed in the second or third trimester of pregnancy that was not clearly overt diabetes prior to gestation)

4. Specific types of diabetes due to other causes, e.g. ,mono genic diabetes syndromes (such as neonatal diabetes and maturity-onset diabetes of the young [MODY]), diseases of the exocrine pancreas (such as cystic fibrosis and pancreatitis), and drug- or chemical-induced diabetes (such as with glucocorticoid use, in the treatment of HIV/AIDS, or after organ transplantation)
