What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin, a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches, and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes is a mystery, although both genetics and environment appear to play roles. There are two major types of diabetes:

Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes

Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes is a disease which results from the body's failure to produce insulin -- the hormone that "unlocks" the cells of the body, allowing glucose to enter and fuel them.

This is most often the result of an autoimmune process in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Since glucose cannot enter the cells, it builds up in the blood and the body's cells literally starve to death.

People with type 1 diabetes must take daily insulin injections and regularly monitor blood sugar levels.

Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes

Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes results from the body's inability to make enough or properly use insulin. Often type 2 diabetes can be controlled through diet and exercise alone, but sometimes these are not enough and either oral medications or insulin must be used.

Of the nearly 1.2 million Malaysians with diabetes, more than 98% have type 2 diabetes.

People with type 2 diabetes often develop the disease after age 30, but are not aware they have diabetes until treated for one of its serious complications.
