Type 1 diabetes (occurring from childhood or naturally), type 2 (associated with obesity and active lifestyle), diabetes insipidus (caused by disturbance level of hypothalamus) and gestational diabetes (occurring during pregnancy). These conditions affect how the pancreas (an organ of the digestive tract) excretes insulin or how the body responds to this hormone.
Depending on the type and severity, diabetes is controlled by dietary measures, weight loss, oral medication, or injected or inhaled insulin. The WHO document suggests that there is a wide range of short and long-term complications of diabetes, including eye problems, a significant increase in the risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidneys of death.
This November 14 day was established in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization to try to cope with an increasing number of diabetes cases and the burden on the country.
