Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes!

Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes!

Type 1 diabetes is commonly referred to as juvenile diabetes and is mostly witnessed among children. It can also occur in adults. In this condition, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or completely stops producing insulin. The immune system, which saves the body from foreign microbes, attacks the cells that are responsible for producing insulin. The treatment methods include taking insulin shots, taking healthy diet and increased physical activity.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition wherein the insulin is produced normally, but the body is not able to use it properly due to insulin resistance. It is the most common form of diabetes. In the earlier stages, patients have high insulin levels and they can be treated with oral glucose-lowering medicines. With time, pancreatic cells get damaged and insulin may be required to control the blood sugar. The treatment plan includes medication, making lifestyle changes, and controlling blood-sugar and cholesterol levels.

Gestational diabetes is diabetes that develops in some women during pregnancy. It usually occurs around 24th week. The hormones produced during pregnancy can block insulin to be used by the body.  These women have normal blood sugar before pregnancy and most of them have normal sugar after delivery also. But they require treatment of diabetes during pregnancy and many of them may become diabetic later in life. If untreated, it can have adverse effects on pregnancy and the baby.

Secondary diabetes – Rarely, diabetes can occur due to some other diseases like cushing’s syndrome, acromegaly, pancreatitis, pancreatic surgery, trauma or some drugs like steroids etc.

Risk factors for type 2 diabetes

  1. Weight: Being overweight is a primary risk factor for diabetes. An increased amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of insulin resistance by the body. It is therefore essential to shed as much weight as one can to avoid diabetes.

  2. Inactivity: Immobility increases the risk of diabetes in a person. It causes insulin resistance, making it difficult for the body to use glucose and convert it into energy. A daily routine which is devoid of physical activity ensures fat storage in the body, which can turn into type 2 diabetes. So, engaging in moderate intensity physical activity for at least 30-45 minutes daily is very helpful.

  3. Family history: Diabetes, especially type 2, is closely linked with family history. If a person has diabetes, it is more likely that his immediate family or extended family has a history of diabetes.

  4. Ethnicity: African-Americans, people from the Indian subcontinent, Latinos, etc., are more likely to suffer from diabetes compared to their American or European counterparts.

  5. Age: Age has a direct correlation with diabetes. The age group of 45–65 is considered to be more diabetes-prone. Inactivity, immobility, and an increase of sugar intake are some of the primary reasons for developing diabetes in this age group.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Looking at your fasting glucose, you seem to have diabetes, even though PP is 172 mg. Please get a HbA1c% test done, that will give a clear indication whether As regards using honey whether one is a pre-diabtic or has diabetes then honey is not good as it is only sucrose. Thanks. You have diabetes or not.

I normally check my blood sugar without symptoms by doctor grouse metre it comes 111, what it shows.
It shows a pre-diabetic state. However, there can be 10-15 % variability in the glucometer readings. It would be ideal to check blood sugar both fasting and pp in the lab once a year. Doing an hba1c also helps in diagnosis. Alternatively, you can get a glucose tolerance test done also.

Infertility - 10 Myths & Facts

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DNB - Obstetrics & Gynecology, Fellowship in Gynecologic Endoscopy
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Infertility - 10 Myths & Facts

There are some commonest misconceptions about infertility, and these misconceptions should be eliminated as soon as possible so that the actual facts can be known. There are many online sites where you can find detailed information on the scientific explanations regarding infertility, and you can follow them.

List of myths and facts regarding infertility

1.Myth: The menstrual cycle of a woman is for 28 days.
Fact: Normal cycle ranges between 21-36 days.

2.Myth: A woman can have pregnancy on the day one of menstrual cycle.
Fact: The released eggs remain viable for almost 12-14 hours, and a woman can get pregnant after an intercourse done two-days after ovulation and five-days before ovulation.

3.Myth: Infertility occurs due to stress.
Fact: Ovulation can surely get delayed due to hormone suppression, but infertility does not occur due to stress.

4.Myth: Sperms stay active for few hours.
Fact: Sperms stay alive at least for five days.

5.Myth: Men with a higher sexual-drive will have a normal sperm-count.
Fact: No relation is there in between fertility and virility. Sometimes, it has been found that men having a higher sex-drive do not produce sperms.

6.Myth: Women have to wait for three months to conceive after stopping the usage of contraceptive pills.
Fact: As soon as a woman stops pill usage, hormonal levels go back to normal condition, as a result of which ovulation begins immediately.

7.Myth: Only females have infertility troubles.
Fact: Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles as per the current scientific studies.

8.Myth: Ovulation occurs in a woman on the 14th day of menstrual cycle.
Fact: Ovulation can be calculated by counting 14 days backwards from the past menstrual cycle's last day.

9.Myth: Daily sex can increase conceiving chances.
Fact: During ovulation, having sex each day, especially in between 12-16th day of the cycle can be the best timing.

10.Myth: Fertility troubles occur at 35.
Fact: Peak fertility timing in a woman's life is 20, and this might continue until late 30s. Fertility troubles might even arrive at a younger age. With age, conception chances get declined, especially after 35. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
