Diabetes is a systemic disease which is characterized by an inability to produce insulin, with its respective hyperglycemia. Diabetic patients tend to have complications such as hiperosmolar condition due to lost electrolytes, and basically problems at the neural level (diabetic neuropathy) and complications in eyes, kidneys, lower limb and vascular system. The incidence in Mexico is 2 to 4 %.
There are several types of diabetes, although we can summarize them as follows:
1.Diabetes mellitus type I: Tends to occur in children and young adults, but can occur at any age. Individuals with special genetic predisposition, immune destruction of the insulin-producing cells determines a progressive loss of endogenous insulin. Therefore requires exogenous insulin to gain control of glucose, prevent Diabetic Cetoacidosis and sustain life.
2.Diabétes Mellitus type II: usually appears in 30 years. There has been observed a genetic predisposition, but pathogenesis is different from the type I diabetes patients; most patients are obese and many show the action of insulin resistance. Usually, endogenous insulin production should be sufficient to prevent cetoacidosis, but when the stress is very intense, they may receive cetoacidosis. These patients usually respond well to the oral hipoglicemiants.
3. The other diabetes mellitus (secondary) show hyperglycemia associated with another cause, such as a pancreatic disease, pancreatectomy, pregnancy, drugs or chemicals, syndrome cushing, acromegaly, and many rare congenital disorders.
