Causes of Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus occurs when the pancreas doesn't make enough or any of the hormone insulin, or when the insulin produced doesn't work effectively. In diabetes, this causes the level of glucose in the blood to be too high.

In Type 1 diabetes the cells in the pancreas that make insulin are destroyed, causing a severe lack of insulin. This is thought to be the result of the body attacking and destroying its own cells in the pancreas - known as an auto immune reaction.

It's not clear why this happens, but a number of explanations and possible triggers of this reaction have been proposed. These include:

A.infection with a specific virus or bacteria;

B.exposure to food-borne chemical toxins; and

C.exposure as a very young infant to cow's milk, where an as yet unidentified component of this triggers the autoimmune reaction in the body.

However, these are only hypotheses and are by no means proven causes. Type 2 diabetes is believed to develop when:

A.the receptors on cells in the body that normally respond to the action of insulin fail to be stimulated by it - this is known as insulin resistance. In response to this more insulin may be produced, and this over-production exhausts the insulin-manufacturing cells in the pancreas;

B.there is simply insufficient insulin available; and

C.the insulin that is available may be abnormal and therefore doesn't work properly.

The following risk factors increase the chances of someone developing Type 2 diabetes:

A.Increasing age;

B.obesity; and

C.physical inactivity.

Rarer causes of diabetes include:

A.Certain medicines;

B.pregnancy (gestational diabetes);

C.and any illness or disease that damages the pancreas and affects its ability to produce insulin e.g. pancreatitis.

What doesn't cause diabetes

It's important to also be aware of the different myths that over the years have arisen about the causes of diabetes. Eating sweets or the wrong kind of food does not cause diabetes. However, it may cause obesity and this is associated with people developing Type 2 diabetes.

Stress does not cause diabetes, although it may be a trigger for the body turning on itself as in the case of Type 1 diabetes. It does, however, make the symptoms worse for those who already have diabetes.

Diabetes is not contagious. Someone with diabetes cannot pass it on to anyone else.

Alka's Accupuncture Centre-No disease is an incurable disease

The Korean word Su means hand and Jok is foot. Thus, Su Jok therapy is a therapy using hands and feet. The inventor of the science is Prof. Park, Jae Woo. It is very interesting to note that the structure of the hand and foot demonstrates a surprising similarity with the structure of the human body. This similarity is the manifestation of deep inner relationships existing between the body and the hand or the foot. Thousands of people have understood this close relationship of the hand and the foot with the body.

Alka Sodhani , a graduate from ISSABELLA THOBURN COLLEGE, LUCKNOW did couple of courses in homeopathy as an alternative science.She mastered the field, and then got introduced to SUJOK acupuncture.

Having attended many national and international conferences under the originator Prof. Park Jae Woo and his associates , Sujok has become her life.With 20 years of experience ,she ensures that people get back on their feet immediately.She also ensures that people feel better from the first session itself.

Alka treats sports and non-sporting muscle and joint problems and gives acupuncture to aged people who have joint pains and suffer with other old age issues.

Heart disease which is considered the end of the world is treated as easily as a common cold and cough.The treatment might take few sittings but one can lead a life without the fear of operation and the knife.!
