Now you have to touch on issues related to the causes of diabetes. Diabetes insulin-dependent diabetes often develops at a young age. But this does not mean that the first type of diabetes develops only in children. The disease may begin in the adult. You have to understand that diabetes does not develop from eating too much sweet, stress, overwork and similar reasons. One of the main theories explaining cause of diabetes is the theory associated with viral infection and genetic predisposition.
When the virus enters the body, the body's immune system detects an alien material and begins to produce antibodies, which have to destroy these viruses. But for some hereditary characteristics of immunity, after all viruses will be destroyed, there is no 'off' defenses the body and continue to produce antibodies. It starts with the attack on the body's own cells. In the case of diabetes, the first type these cells are the cells of the pancreas. The ones that produce weight loss, itching, slow healing of wounds, etc. However, cell death is not instantaneous, although its speed may not be the same in different patients.
Which – while still living cells managing to cope with demand the virus in the body, until such time as you have any symptoms of diabetes, is sometimes a long time. During this period in your life can happen different, including adverse events, that the development of your diabetes had no effect, but were psychologically very important. We should not bind the origin and development of diabetes with these factors – even if it did not happen in my life No Event – diabetes still could not appear. The role of heredity. Remember, that inherited not the diabetes, but only the predisposition to it. That is, even if there is a predisposition, diabetes diabetes may not develop. Many patients with a second type of diabetes suggest that since both families were ill with diabetes in adulthood, and then they 'God himself told' and get rid of their disease, they do not able. This is not a correct view. A great many people whose parents were in middle age patients with diabetes of the second type, do not have the disease, because they retain a healthy body weight. Diabetes does not manifest itself ever, if you try to maintain body weight is normal. And when the first type of diabetes is inherited not the diabetes, but only a predisposition to it. That is, even if none of the relatives of the sick he had no diabetes, each of his parents may have in their genotype gene predisposing to the development of diabetes. This does not mean that all children in the family will be suffering from diabetes. Most likely, all other children ill with diabetes only, while the other remained healthy. So even if the genotype of the human gene predisposing to diabetes, the disease may never occur if people do not meet specific virus.
