Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Specific Purpose: I want my audience to know the cause, affects, treatment, and prevention of type 2 diabetes. * Introduction I. You would never think a disease as common as diabetes mellitus would have such a large impact on your lifestyle. II. Although it is a chronic disease, it can be managed and in some cases, even prevented. III. 4 years ago, my dad was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the result of one’s insulin either not working properly or not enough being produced. After being diagnosed, my dad had to make a lot of changes in his lifestyle in order to manage the disease. IV. Fortunately, since it was first discovered in 1552 B.C., scientists have learned a lot about the causes, affects, treatments, and prevention of diabetes.
First, I will discuss the causes of diabetes.
I. Diabetes is a disease in which ones blood sugar levels are higher than normal. Depending on the type, different things can cause this. a. There are three types of diabetes: i. Type 1- occurs in children due to the pancreas either not making enough or no insulin. ii. Type 2- one’s insulin is not working properly or not enough is being produced. iii. Gestational- results from fluctuating hormones in pregnant women affecting their blood glucose levels. b. In non-diabetics, the insulin helps glucose enter cells, which then use the glucose for energy. In diabetics, the insulin either is not helping glucose enter cells, or not getting enough glucose into them.
Today I will discuss the affects of type 2 diabetes. II. Type 2 Diabetes affects on the body vary from person to person. c. Initial affects: iv. Cells starved for energy. v. Tiredness. d. Of the millions of people with diabetes, almost 1/3 does not know they have it.…...

Type One Diabetes

...Type 1 Diabetes Kirsten Wilburn Biomedical Science Part A Type one diabetes isn't something you can just catch, it's something you are born with. From the first day of your life, your responsible for keeping yourself alive. We're going inside the life of Annabelle Grace, a 16 year old diabetic. We will get to see how life really is when you have Type one diabetes. First, Annabelle gave us some background information on type one diabetes. She informed us that there are pretty distinct symptoms of type one. You may experience extreme hunger, unnatural urination, unnatural weight loss, Annabelle was only 6 when her and her family found out that she had type one diabetes. The doctors informed them of short and long term effects. Short term effects may include hypoglycemia which is low blood glucose and asks diabetic ketoacidosis which is a very high blood glucose. The long term effects most diffidently out weights the short. Annabelle, as a result of having type one diabetes, now has a lifelong commitment to the filling treatment options: -Taking insulin -Exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight -Eating healthy foods -And monitoring your blood sugar daily Annabelle also shared with us the many types of insulin that she has used in her 10 years. They included: rapid acting insulin, long acting insulin, and intermediate insulin. She also showed us just how a diabetic receives this insulin, by INJECTIONS. We wanted to know if having type one......

Introduction Diabetes mellitus type II is also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and is thought to be caused by abnormal insulin production or by hereditary insulin resistance. According to Madden et al (2008) type II diabetes mellitus amounts for 90-95% of all diabetes diagnoses and by the year 2025 approximately 300 million people will have the disease. Diabetes can cause destructive complications leading to many medical problems such as an increase risk in cardiovascular disease, damage to the retina of the eyes, kidney disorders, peripheral vascular disease, and possible stroke. These complications that can arise from diabetes impact the......

Type 2 Diabetes

...Type 2 Diabetes results from a complex physiologic process that includes the pancreatic beta cells, peripheral glucose uptake in the muscle, the secretion of multiple cytokines and hormone-like molecules from adipocytes, hepatic glucose production, and likely the central nervous system. Consistent with the complex web of physiologic defects, the emerging picture of the genetics will involve a large number of risk susceptibility genes, each individually with relatively small effect (odds ratios below 1.2 in most cases). The challenge for the future will include cataloging and confirming the genetic risk factors, and understanding how these risk factors interact with each other and with the known environmental and lifestyle risk factors that increase the propensity to type 2 Diabetes.   Type 2 Diabetes The genetics of Type 2 diabetes is complicated, with many different genes influencing a person's risk. Because of this array of genes, Type 2 diabetes is not inherited in a clearly dominant or recessive manner. Instead, a person may have one gene that increases their risk and other genes that decrease risk. Together, these genes, along with environmental factors, determine a person's overall risk for developing diabetes. With so many variables to consider, the medical community is a long way from a genetic test for Type 2 diabetes. Although researchers know from studying family histories that you can inherit a risk for Type 2 diabetes, they have had difficulty......

There Are Two Types of Diabetes

...There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes, which is five percent of the total number of diabetes cases, is caused by a deficiency of the hormone, Insulin. It is produced by the pancreas. Insulin regulates blood sugar levels (glucose). It is not known as to why people develop Type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a little different in the fact that it can usually be prevented. Type 2 diabetes is due to the body being unable to respond or it becomes resistant to insulin. Blood sugar levels may be high, low, or regular. The pancreas tries to make more insulin to make up for irregular levels of glucose. The cells that make the insulin become tired or the body then becomes resistant to the insulin. There are many complications that go along with diabetes. Heart attacks, loss of limbs, strokes, blindness, and kidney failure are just a few of the things that could be prevented if you never got diabetes in the first place. Diabetes is a very serious and sometimes deadly disease. There are certain risk factors to diabetes. Genetics plays a role in increasing the chances for contracting diabetes, however, these chances can be greatly reduced by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating correctly, and exercising regularly Lack of physical activity and excess body fat are a major cause of diabetes. If a person chooses to be inactive on a daily basis their chances increase greatly. A person should exercise at least three hours a week to......

Diabetes Type 2

...Type 2 Diabetes Type (II) Diabetes Diabetes is a complex metabolic disease that is generally categorized by either relative or absolute insulin deficiency. In 1997 the ADA issued new diagnostic and classification criteria for this disease. The classification of diabetes mellitus includes four clinical classes. • Type I diabetes (results from beta cell destruction, usually leading to absolute insulin deficiency). • Type II diabetes (results from a progressive insulin secretory defect on the background of insulin resistance). • Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) usually temporary condition during pregnancy. • Other types are due to causes ranging from: a. generic defects in beta cell function b. genetic defects in insulin action c. diseases of the exocrine pancreas d. drug or chemical induction For the purposes of this report, the concentration will be on type II diabetes. Each type obviously have its own complexities that are unique to it. Type II diabetes, which is also sometimes known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) is a “heterogeneous disorder characterized by impaired insulin secretion and reduced tissue sensitivity to insulin” [Rubin]. Within the pancreas, specifically the islets of langerhans exist beta cells. The beta cell is the area where production secretion and sequestering of insulin takes place. The beta cell, which is a sensory cell, contains surface glucose receptors within the plasma membrane,......

...Type 2 diabetes in Hispanic adults Gerald Jean University of phoenix NUR/427 July1, 2014 Week 1 Type 2 diabetes in Hispanic adults Chronic disease is very significant in the health care professions. When considering the model it gives us the ability to assess, implement, and evaluates the effectiveness of the care we delivered to our patients in the daily basis. Type 2 diabetes is a progressive, chronic illness that affects a lot of Americans in many ethnic groups, but it is found that Hispanic adults have the highest percentage of developing type 2 diabetes (American academy of nurse Practitioners, 2007). The purpose of this paper is to motivate Hispanic adults to adopt healthy behaviors, increase motivation, and build skills, to enhance a positive health practices and self- management. According to American Diabetes Association, 2014, type 2 diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death in Hispanic American. Also it is estimated that by 2025 the percentage of Hispanic living with this chronic illness will increase to 18 %( ADA, 2014). As a registered nurse it is our responsibility to educate the patients how to maintain a healthy lifestyles by motivativating them to resist for optimal health, and supporting them in changing their lifestyle to maintain a better health. We have to do our best so they can meet their ultimate goals. When consider working with......

Type 2 Diabetes

...I have chosen adult-onset diabetes; Type II Diabetes are once known as adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose), your body's important source of fuel. With type 2 Diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain a normal glucose level. The symptoms of type 2 diabetes are increases of hunger without enough insulin to move sugar into your cells; your muscles and organs become depleted of energy. Despite eating more than usual to relieve hunger, you may lose weight. Without the ability to metabolize glucose, the body uses alternative fuels stored in muscle and fat. Calories are lost as excess glucose is released in the urine. Some people with type two diabetes have patches of dark, velvety skin in the folds and creases of their bodies — usually in the armpits and neck. If you're diagnosed with diabetes, the doctor may do other tests to distinguish between type 1 and type two diabetes since the two conditions often require different treatments. Acanthuses Nigerians is a skin condition is also seen in people who have pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes. Alpha cells make and release a hormone called glucagon. The body sends a signal to the alpha cells to make glucagon when blood glucose falls too low. Then glucagon reaches the liver where it tells it to release glucose into the......

Diabetes Type 1

...EVIDENCED BASED PRACTICE RESEARCH- TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS IN CHILDREN EBP RESEARCH- TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS IN CHILDREN EVIDENCED BASED PRACTICE RESEARCH- TYPE 1 DIABETES IN CHILDREN According to Health Encyclopedia, “The most common type of diabetes in children is type 1 diabetes… [It] is one of the most common chronic diseases in children… [It] accounts for 5 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes in the U.S” (Pat, 2015). Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is also known as juvenile, brittle, sugar and insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The focus of this paper will be on understanding how T1DM is diagnosed and identifying a research or evidence-based article that focuses comprehensively on a specific intervention or new diagnostic tool for the treatment of diabetes in children. Forms of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus There are two forms of this disease. They are idiopathic type 1 and immune-mediated diabetes. Idiopathic type 1 diabetes is diabetes with no identifiable cause; i.e. unknown cause while Immune- mediated diabetes; the most common form of type 1 diabetes results from the body’s immune system attacking and destroying pancreatic cells thereby prohibiting its cells from producing little to no insulin. Research suggest that environment, virus, family history or genetic may play a role in increasing the risk and likelihood of having T1DM and or the body attacking its own cells (autoimmunity).......

Treating Diabetes Mellitus Type Ii

...Treating Diabetes Mellitus Type II Treating Diabetes Mellitus Type II Type II diabetes (T2D) is a metabolic disorder characterized by chronically elevated blood glucose levels. It characteristically results from a surplus caloric intake, as compared to energy consumption, combined with inadequate insulin secretion, due to dysfunction of the insulin-secreting pancreatic beta cells (Pfeiffer & Klein, 2014). Type II diabetes has reached pandemic levels, despite efforts to slow its progression. In a society where healthcare is ever-changing, primary care physicians, along with advanced practitioners are now treating this disease more readily, as compared to specialist and endocrinologist in the past. As with many disease processes, there are several options when choosing a treatment plan for type II diabetes. Combining knowledge and evidence-based research, the practitioner will be able to establish an individualized treatment plan for treating type II diabetes mellitus. Pathophysiology Type II diabetes is a very complex, non-communicable disease that effects more than 370 million people throughout the world. The symptoms of this disease can vary from patient to patient. Without intense and concentrated efforts to address the pathogenesis and treatment of this syndrome, the destructive macrovascular and microvascular outcomes of type II diabetes will remain a major problem for years to come (Kahn, Cooper, & Del Prato, 2014). In T2D plasma insulin levels may be low,...

Type 2 Diabetes

...After reading a few posts made by various patients on their perspectives of type 2 Diabetes, We’ve come to the conclusion that when diagnosed, these people feel as if it’s their fault. And in some cases it may be, but definitely not all. Sometimes the physician has the tendency to make the patient feel like “they have brought this disease upon themselves, when that may not necessarily be the case.” Diabetes can be genetically given to you, or an expecting mother can develop gestational diabetes during labor and be more likely to develop type 2 Diabetes later on in her life. There is even discrimination among others who are diabetic. For instance, a Type 1 diabetic might assume that a Type 2 diabetic, who is overweight and at a fast food restaurant, brought their condition upon themselves. While others look at Type 1 Diabetes as a ‘real’ condition, meaning that they did not bring it upon themselves by their actions. The patients expressed their feelings about Type 2 Diabetes as being saddened, hurt or even worthless. “When I was first diagnosed, I was so worried that something would happen to me and I wouldn’t be able to take care of my children due to getting my legs cut off and them looking down upon me as their mother.” These are the words of a patient and I would assume that her feelings aren’t far off from anyone else experiencing the same thing. A few posts written by people described feeling like this was the end of their life and that there was “no hope in sight” for...

Gastric Bypass Surgery and Type Ii Diabetes

...Gastric Bypass Surgery and Type II Diabetes I chose this topic because of the amount of diabetes in my family. All of my maternal side of the family, except my mother, are diabetic. My father was recently diagnosed. It is of great concern to me as my risk is greater. The article is based on a study recently published in Science Translational Medicine. The study is small, but states that gastric bypass patients have lower insulin needs then patients who lost the same amount of weight without surgery. In the study, 80 percent of the patients were cured of their type II diabetes. The researchers found that branch-chained amino acids circulating in the bloodstream are greatly reduced in post gastric bypass patients. Apparently the branch-chained amino acids have a greater effect on insulin sensitivity than straight chained amino acids. The gastric bypass surgery drops the level of branch-chained amino acids even before weight is lost. After surgery and weight loss the amount circulating is even lower then in patients who just lost the same amount of weight. The scientists can’t explain why the surgery itself makes the change in amino acids. One theory is that there is a change in the hormones in the stomach that affect branch-chained amino acids. Another theory is that perhaps a change in bacteria in the stomach could account for the decrease in amino acids. This is interesting because, if the scientists can figure out why the branch-chained amino acids drop even before...

Type 1 Diabetes

...Discuss the current knowledge of the contribution of cellular and molecular components of the immune system to the pathology of type 1 diabetes Abstract An autoimmune disease resulting in insulin deficiency, Type 1 diabetes mellitus. There have been countless studies into its causes; there is still no solid answer. Previous studies strongly implicated Th1 cells to play a key role in the progression of type 1 diabetes, however, recent studies have been showing that this is inadequate to explain the pathology of the autoimmune disease Type 1 diabetes. In fact other constituents of the immune system are accountable; Th17 cells play a huge role in the cellular pathology of Type 1 diabetes. Introduction Type 1 Diabetes mellitus is an autoimmune disease which results from faults in immune response thus activating self-destroying T cells working against beta cells that produce insulin in the pancreas, causing a deficiency in insulin. Patients of Type 1 diabetes are required to inject insulin daily. Diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can occur at any age; however it is a chronic disease that is most common in childhood (Atkins et al. 2014.) Discoveries from epidemiological studies in humans with type 1 diabetes have shown that islet cell destruction goes through a number of stages (Campbell et al. 1990) the consequent low levels of insulin lead to higher levels of blood glucose. Common symptoms of this disease are frequent urination, increased thirst and weight gain. Before symptoms......

Diabetes Type 1

...Type 1 Diabetes HS 200 Unit 8 Capstone Project: Type 1 Diabetes Kaplan University July 8, 2014 An abundant amount of research throughout the years of the disease, Type 1 diabetes, has been completed leading physicians and patients to a pathway of a better understanding of the disease, the diagnostic approaches as well as the management skills needed to control the disease and its effects on the body. As Type 1 diabetes is thought to be an autoimmune response, there is not currently a cure for the disease because the body is responsible for attacking the insulin producing cells. However, with lifestyle changes including exercise and dietary alterations can impact the prognosis of Type 1 Diabetes into a positive direction. A long, healthy life can be attainable with the proper management of the disease as well as following the suggested treatment plan. When symptoms, such as bedwetting, frequent urination and extreme thirst, are apparent an appointment with a family physician is highly recommended. When Type 1 diabetes is thought to be the diagnosis, the physician will order diagnostic testing through blood work to determine the level of blood sugar in the body to confirm the diagnosis. The most common laboratory tests used are a blood glucose test and the Hemoglobin A1C test (MedLine, n.d.). Both tests require a sample of blood by a needle inserted in the vein, primarily in the arm. Blood glucose tests are utilized to measure and......

AD is a dementia defined by partial or total loss of memory. The risk of development of AD increases with age. Different therapeutic approaches have been employed when it comes to treatment of AD. Results of indicate that diabetic drugs are effective in treating Alzheimer ’s disease. Despite efforts directed at treatment of the condition, the results have not been satisfactory. This could be attributed to the early or late onset of AD pathogenesis while at the same time being underpinned by various mechanisms. There is evidence suggesting the effectiveness of type 2 diabetic drugs in treatment of AD. Research has focused on understanding the possibility of using Type 2 diabetic drugs in the treatment of AD. In this paper, a research review is conducted to expand on the potential use of T2DM diabetic drugs in treating AD. A...

Type 1 Diabetes

...Type 1 Diabetes Definition: Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disease in which the pancreas no longer produces a sufficient amount of insulin or the cells do not respond to the insulin that is being produced. This causes the glucose in the body to not be a absorbed by the cells. Type 1 Diabetes or Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM) happens when the body does not produce insulin, requiring the individual to inject insulin. Epidemiology: Type 1 Diabetes is prevalent among children and adolescents. Studies have shown that children receiving oral antibodies and insulin has increased eight times between 1998 and 2005.( Hindmarsh et al., 2009) The current global increase in incidence of 3% per year is well reported, and it is predicted that the incidence of type 1 diabetes will be 40% higher in 2010 than in 1998. (Gillespie 2006) The Search for Diabetes in Youth found that type 1 diabetes is the primarily in children 10 years and younger.(Aanstoot et al., 2007) High rates of type 1 diabetes were found in non-Hispanic white youth.(Dabelea et al., 2011) While most cases of type 1 diabetes are found in children and adolescents there is an increasing rate in older adults. Etiology: Type 1 DM is linked to a genetic component. Antibodies to the islet cell and to insulin are can be positive for several years before diabetes occurs. Non-genetic factors may also contribute. Viruse such as mumps, rubella, coxsackievirus B4 can be potential triggers for......
