Diabetes or Diabetes mellitus (DM) is defined as the group comprising of multiple metabolic diseases in which an individual faces the problem of high blood sugar. The symptoms of increased thirst, increased hunger, and frequent urination are common in case of high blood pressure. Besides this, many complications are likely to arise from the diabetes, if left untreated. The other long-term, serious complications may include kidney failure, heart disease and eye sight damage. Thus, the major cause of diabetes is either the non-responsiveness of cells to the insulin produced in the body or the due to the insufficient production of insulin in pancreas. Generally the people who die of diabetes are more than double of the number of people dying without diabetes.The primary feature of Type 1 diabetes mellitus include the loss of beta cells that produce insulin in pancreas which ultimately results in the deficiency of insulin. The Type 1 can be categorized further in idiopathic or immune-mediated responsiveness and sensitivity towards the insulin are the usual aspects of Type 1 in the initial stages. Adults and children both can be affected likely by this disease, but it has been conventionally known as "juvenile diabetes" for the reason that most of the children suffered from this disease. Labile diabetes or "Brittle" diabetes was conventionally used for the description of recurrent and dramatic variations in the levels of glucose, that usually take place for no obvious causes in the diabetes that is.
