Diabetology

Diabetology is the clinical science of diabetes mellitus, its diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. It can be considered a specialised field of endocrinology. The term diabetologist is used in several ways. In North America over the last 40 years it is most often used for an internist who through practice and interest develops expertise in diabetes care without having formal training or board certification in endocrinology. Diabetology is not a recognized medical specialty and has no formal training programs leading to board certification. In other contexts the term diabetologist refers to any physician, including endocrinologists, whose practice and/or research efforts are concentrated mainly in diabetes care. Apart from regulating medication dosage and timing, a diabetologist will also concern themselves with the potential consequences of diabetes, e.g. retinopathy, nephropathy and peripheral neuropathy.

Diabetes types and their treatment

When you have diabetes, your body won’t make enough insulin or can’t use the insulin it makes effectively. Diabetes can be of different types.

Type 1 diabetes

An autoimmune disease that destroys the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. The primary treatment for type 1 diabetes is insulin. Usually, four types of insulin are used.

– Rapid-acting insulin that gets to work within fifteen minutes and lasts for about three to four hours

– Short-acting insulin can last three to four hours higher than rapid-acting insulin and start to work within thirty minutes

– Intermediate-acting insulin start working within one to two hours and their effects can stay up to twelve to eighteen hours

– Long-acting insulin takes the longest to function and can last for twenty-four hours or more

Type 2 diabetes

In this disease, your body becomes resistant to insulin resulting in sugar build-up in the blood. It can be managed by diet and exercise, but if that doesn’t work to lower your blood sugar, you must go for medication. The following drugs can be prescribed to lower the blood sugar level.

– Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors like acarbose and miglitol

– DPP-4 inhibitors like linagliptin, saxagliptin and sitagliptin

– Biguanides to reduce the glucose production of the liver

– Glucagon-like peptides. Examples include dulaglutide, exenatide and liraglutide

– Meglitinides, such as nateglinide and repaglinide

– Sulfonylureas – glyburide, glipizide and glimepiride

– SGLT2 inhibitors that release more glucose into the urine

– Thiazolidinedione, such as pioglitazone and rosiglitazone

Prediabetes

It occurs when you have abnormally higher levels of blood sugar, but not high enough for type 2 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes are resistant to insulin. Middle age or older are more likely to get type 2 diabetes, so care must be taken with the help of diabetes treatment in India. But type 2 diabetes also affects teens and adults, mainly because of childhood obesity.

Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes is caused during pregnancy by insulin-blocking hormones produced by the placenta. So, it’s important to monitor the blood sugar levels several times a day. Sometimes, dietary changes and exercises may not be able to reduce the high sugar levels. In such a case, they may need insulin to lower their blood sugar and take the best treatment for diabetes in India.
