Abstract

Diabetes is for now incurable chronic disease which appears as a result of damage of betacells which produce hormone insulin or as a result of tissue resistance to that hormone.It is marked by absolute or relative deficiency of insulin, causing hyperglycemia which can eventually lead to damage of many organic systems. Depending is it a word of tissue resistance or total destruction of beta-cells we distinguish two types: type 1 or insulin dependent and type 2 or insulin independent. Type 1 ussualy occurs in younger age while type 1occurs in the middle age (after 40). Although the precise etiology of diabetes is uncertain reasearchers believe that factors as genetics, poor diet (malnutrition) and environment (virus affecting pancreas) may be the trigger of this disease.
