Diabetes & Endocrinology
Diabetes is a significantly growing problem affecting not just the older adults, but also the younger population. The cause of diabetes usually depends on the individual’s hormonal balance. At Sri Sri Holistic Hospitals, the department of diabetes and endocrinology has the best Diabetes Doctors in Hyderabad who have been practicing for over a decade.
Diabetes is a condition caused due to the over or underproduction of the pancreatic fluid called insulin. Insulin is responsible for breaking down the food and converting it into energy. When there is a problem with the production of this hormone, the sugars in the food do not breakdown properly and the glucose and sugar levels in the blood either drop or increase. Diabetes and endocrinology is the area of medicine which deals with the diagnosis and treatments of hormonal imbalances of the endocrine system.
Diabetes is of two types:
Type 1 – This is the type in which there is less or no insulin production, and is growing to become more common in young people. It is also the more severe type of diabetes among both the types. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the individual’s immune system mistakenly attacks the insulin producing cells in the pancreas.
Type 2 – In this type of diabetes, the body becomes insulin resistant, producing insulin in abundance only for the body find it difficult to make use of it. Type 2 diabetes is a condition that can be controlled with lifestyle changes. Diet, exercise, and an active lifestyle plays a significant role in controlling type 2 diabetes.
Apart from the two types, diabetes can also occur temporarily in pregnant women. It is known as gestational diabetes. It occurs when the expecting mother is unable to produce required amount of insulin for the nourishment of the baby.
