March 8, 2018We were told there were just two types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2, but now we're being told there might be five types/clusters. Diabetes overall is really just describing how people have blood sugar levels that are out of control, too high which causes damage throughout the body. Now there are lots of different ways you can end up in that state. Type 1 is a severe autoimmune disease where your immune system turns against a part of your body, the cells in the pancreas which produce the hormone insulin and insulins vital for controlling insulin levels. Type 2 is generally associated with poor lifestyle, more common with people who put on weight and is generally the body losing the ability to respond to insulin, so as you gain weight, and your blood sugar levels go up. Type 3, is severe insulin resistance diabetes, patients who are overweight and the body is still producing huge quantities of insulin in an attempt to bring down blood sugar levels, but the body is not responding to it. So those three are the real severe ones. Type 4 is a mild obesity-related diabetes, that tends to be seen in obese patients, and type 5 is a case of diabetes that tends to be associated with the ageing process. Health Check: BBC World Service.
