Diabetes occurs for a number of reasons, but the ultimate cause of the high blood sugar that characterizes the disease is either deficiency of the hormone insulin or a combination of insulin deficiency and resistance of the body tissues to its actions.
When insulin is lacking or the body resists its actions, the level of glucose in the blood becomes excessively high and diabetes is diagnosed.
Whatever the form of diabetes, its basis is to some extent hereditary and to some extent environmental.
You developed diabetes because either you are strongly predisposed due to hereditary reasons or because there are factors in your lifestyle and environment (such as gaining weight, getting insufficient exercise, taking certain medications) that increase the likelihood of diabetes or, as is usually the case, a combination of both.
Diabetes information is available everywhere.
