Diabetes and Metabolism Clinic
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease which your blood glucose or blood sugar levels are too high (hyperglycemia). Blood sugar elevation is commonly caused by defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both.
What is the cause?
Normally, the body breaks down the sugar and carbohydrates in the food that we eat into a special sugar called glucose. Glucose gives the cells the energy that it needs to continue functioning. However, the cell needs insulin, a hormone that acts as a key for entry of glucose into the cell and uses it for energy. However, with DM, your body is unable to produce enough insulin, does not use the insulin produced properly or combination of both.
Since the glucose is unable to be processed into the cells, it starts to build up in the blood. These tiny components clog up and create damages to the tiny vessels of your heart, eyes and /or nervous system. DM, when left untreated can cause serious health problems such as heart attack, blindness, kidney diseases, stroke and amputation.
