Diabetes Types: What are the Different Types of Diabetes?
There are different diabetes types to be aware of, especially if you think that you may be at risk for developing diabetes. Here is a brief overview of the most commonly-experienced Diabetes Mellitus types:
Type 1 diabetes mellitus:
Very rarely is seen amongst those older than 30 years of age. It is most prevalent in children and young adults between 10 and 17; Has no definitive causes although it is believed to be caused by genetic predisposition and or a virus. Other possible cause include infections, high fevers and bacterium; Is also called “insulin-dependent” diabetes mellitus because insulin injections are always one part of the treatment plan; Is incurable currently although research continues for pancreatic Islet replacement surgeries and other possible cures; Accounts for roughly 10% of all diabetes mellitus cases;
Gestational diabetes mellitus:
Develops in women during the later stages of pregnancy. Develops in women who have otherwise been diabetes-free all of their lives; Is effectively controllable and reversible in most cases through healthy dieting and exercise alone; Almost always goes completely away after delivery; Is caused by poor dietary choices and sedentary living in over 85% of cases;
Type 2 diabetes mellitus:
Accounts for roughly 90% of all cases of diabetes mellitus; Has seen a more than 76% increase since 1990; Is caused almost in every case by improper dietary choices, poor eating habits and lacking exercise standards; Is effectively controllable and many times reversible through positive changes in diet and exercise; Is very often seen in people who are overweight and/or obese; Is almost 100% preventable;
The different diabetes types all have one thing in common: they are greatly lessened in severity when combated with a healthy water-rich diet and daily physical movement. Over 25 percent of all Americans have been labeled as being completely sedentary. We have become the fattest and laziest nation on the planet here in the US and the all-time record-high disease rates are showing that clearly.
In addition to the more than 15 million reported cases of diabetes mellitus currently in the US, there are also more than 57 million people who are believed to have pre diabetes. Moreover, there are an additional one million plus new cases of diabetes mellitus reported annually in the US alone.
Given that the main causes of diabetes mellitus are poor dietary and lacking exercise standards, one needs only to initiate a healthy type 2 diabetes diet and get daily exercise for about a half an hour in order to cease the development in most cases. Take the initiative and act today to alleviate the development of diabetes mellitus before you have to.
