Diabetes Mellitus :
Diabetes is a metabolic disease or a condition in which the glucose levels in the blood will be high over a prolonged period
of time. In other words, it can be defined as a condition that occurs when the body cannot efficiently make use
of glucose that serves as a source of energy for body cells. Blood sugar levels are controlled by a hormone called insulin

Causes of Diabetes-
Diabetes is either caused due to the insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas or it may occur if the cells 
of the body are not effectively responding to the insulin produced.

Types of Diabetes-
Diabetes is categorized into the following types based on the reason for their cause:

Diabetes Mellitus-
It is the inability of the body to effectively use or respond to the insulin produced by the body and as a result, 
blood sugar levels cannot be regulated effectively. Diabetes mellitus is further classified into two types, namely:

Type 1 Diabetes-
It is also known as Diabetes Mellitus Type 1. It occurs when the pancreas fails to produce sufficient insulin. 
The consequent lack of insulin causes an increase in glucose level in urine and blood.

Type 2 Diabetes-
It is also called Diabetes Mellitus Type 2. The prime reason for the occurrence of type 2 diabetes is due to obesity and
lack of exercise in people who are genetically biased.

Diabetes Insipidus-
When the body is unable to respond or produce the Antidiuretic hormone (ADH), which is secreted by the hypothalamus, 
Diabetes Insipidus occurs. This hormone helps the kidneys manage the amount of water in the human body. 
Without this essential hormone, the kidneys pass an abnormally large volume of urine that is insipid 
(meaning: odourless and dilute).

Gestational Diabetes-
This condition occurs in pregnant women who develop high blood sugar level without a previous history. 
The condition usually resolves after delivery.

Symptoms of Diabetes-
Signs and Symptoms vary from person to person or even there may be no signs sometimes. First, 
let us come up with common symptoms of diabetes.
