Diabetology is a specialisation of medicine that concentrates on the study and treatment of diabetes. Diabetes is a group of metabolic disorders relating to the decreased production of insulin by the pancreas (Type 1 diabetes) or insulin resistance by the body (Type 2 diabetes). Gestational diabetes is another form of diabetes wherein pregnant women develop diabetes with no prior history if the disease. The most common symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, intense thirst and hunger, weight gain, unusual weight loss, fatigue, cuts and bruises that do not heal, male sexual dysfunction and unusual sensations like tingling or numbness in hands and feet.Patients with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin injections for the rest of their life. Their blood-glucose levels also need constant observation and maintenance through regular blood tests and a special diet. In 2014, globally 42 million adults were living with diabetes.
The majority of people with diabetes are affected by type 2 diabetes. Diabetes of all types can lead to complications in many parts of the body and can increase the overall risk of premature death. Possible complications include heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, leg amputation,vision loss and nerve damage. In pregnancy, poorly controlled diabetes increases the risk of foetal death and other complications. Overweight and obese people have a much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to those with a healthy body weight. This risk is especially high with individuals having excessive visceral fat. The risk of Type 2 Diabetes also increases with age. Men who have low levels of testosterone have also been found to be more prone to developing type 2 diabetes. The risk of cardio-vascular diseases is higher for patients with diabetes and hence it is important that such patients get their blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked routinely. Since smoking might have a serious effect on cardiovascular health, diabetics should stop smoking.
