Sample text

The insulin-like growth factors are mainly concerned with growth. DIABETES MELLITUS Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disorder characterized by fasting and/or postprandial hyper­ glycemia with plasma glucose levels that are above defined limits during oral glucose tolerance testing or random blood glucose measurements as defined by established criteria. Type 1 Diabetes There is absolute insulin deficiency due to autoimmune destruction of β cells. There is also a genetic susceptibility to the disease.

Genetically susceptible individuals when exposed to an environmental insult such as viruses (coxsackie, cytomegalovirus, rubella, and mumps) or dietary protein initiates a cascade of autoimmune events that eventually leads to selective destruction of pancreatic β-cells. Autoantibodies to glutamic acid decarboxylase-65 (GAD65), insulinoma antigen 2 (IA-2) and insulin autoantibody (IAA) appear in the serum of subjects as a response to underlying destructive process (and do not contribute to disease pathogenesis) even before the clinical onset of the disease.

Though many a times it may not be possible to know the exact time of onset of diabetes, however the time of its first clinical detec­ tion is often an important indicator. The initial presenting symptoms and the initial glucose values also predict the severity of disease at that point and predict long-term cardiovascular outcomes. Other etiological history like weight at the onset of diabetes, past history of diabetic ketoacidosis, response to prior medications, associated abdominal pain and steatorrhea may further characterize the type of diabetes.
