DIABETES – AUTO-IMMUNE DISORDER
If the pancreas is removed so that no insulin at all is produced, the resultant diabetes can be controlled by about 40 units of insulin daily. By contrast, many true diabetics require up to 100 units daily, so diabetes is more than lack of insulin; there is some degree of insulin resistance.
Broadly, we can classify diabetics into those who are insulin dependent and those who are non-insulin dependent.
It is thought that this may be an auto-immune disorder where the body becomes allergic to its own tissues and manufactures antibodies which act on those tissues, causing inflammation.
The non-insulin dependent type usually develops slowly. It is often spoken of as maturity onset diabetes as it is more common in the elderly, although it may develop in some young people. It is particularly associated with obesity.
