Diabetology is a medical specialization of endocrinology. It is the study of diagnosis and management of diabetes. Diabetes is a lifestyle related disease. Modern sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits and lack of physical activity contribute to diabetes. Diabetes results in high blood glucose or sugar levels . It is due to the improper breakdown of glucose which accumulates in the blood causing the blood glucose levels to rise. Insulin is the hormone necessary to break down glucose into energy for muscles. In diabetes, there is impaired production and use of insulin to maintain appropriate blood glucose levels. The two main types of diabetes are, type 1 diabetes also known as diabetes insipidus or juvenile diabetes and type 2 diabetes also known as diabetes mellitus. Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune disease in which the body?s immune system attacks the insulin producing cells in the pancreas thus leading to no insulin production. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in which there is impaired use of insulin. Common symptoms of diabetes include increased thirst, loss of appetite, frequent urination, increased fatigue, blurry vision, non-healing wounds and yeast infections.Statistics in India stands at 65 million diabetic population that is predicted to touch 100 million by 2035 if not properly managed .
