Factors That Can Affect The Occurrence Of Diabetes?
Tonight, I want to ask you about diabetes. R n r nI just read the beginning of chapter 1 that discusses diabetes. There is one statement that is enough to bother me with this question. R n r n1. Is Diabetes identical to fat people? R n r n2. Based on Information Smokers, the worst possibility can suffer from diabetes. Is that right? R n r nThanks
Hello Stefanus, Thank you for your question.
Diabetes mellitus is a long-term disease that causes an increase in blood sugar / glucose levels. This is caused by the body not using the normal hormone insulin. The hormone insulin is a hormone produced by pancreatic organs that functions to help glucose enter the cells / tissues of the body so that it can be used as energy. Diabetes consists of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, whereas in type 2 diabetes, the body's cells cannot use the insulin hormone as it should. Both of these conditions cause glucose cannot enter the cells / tissues of the body and glucose levels remain high in the blood.
Obesity does have a close relationship with the occurrence of diabetes. In people who are obese, the amount of body fat causes the formation of substances that cause inflammation (pro-inflammatory substances) in the body. As a result, the body's cell resistance to the hormone insulin is formed. Cells that are resistant to the hormone insulin cause the insulin hormone cannot work to help glucose enter the cells of the body so that glucose levels rise in the blood. Likewise with smoking. The habit of smoking causes the body to release inflammatory substances which in turn causes the body's resistance to the hormone insulin.
Hopefully this information is useful.
