Mannheim, Germany (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
EurekaMag.com has newly published 200,632 references and abstracts on Diabetes mellitus. The site's Research Category covers Diabetes mellitus (DM) as a metabolic disease which causes high blood sugar because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. The Life, Earth & Health Sciences Research Section 14 provides many examples of the first type of Diabetes which is referred to as Type 1 DM, "insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus" (IDDM) or "juvenile diabetes". It results from the body's failure to produce insulin, and currently requires the person to inject insulin. The second type, Type 2 DM, "non insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus" (NIDDM) or "adult-onset diabetes" results from insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to use insulin.
The Life, Earth & Health Sciences Research Chapter 13108 presents a selection of the current total of 200,632 references and abstracts on Diabetes mellitus including articles on metabolic changes and current management of diabetes in pregnancy, diagnosis and epidemiology of diabetes in the elderly, a study in a Tanzanian community showing that diabetes is not caused by cassava toxicity, diabetes mellitus and hypertension in rural-rural migrants in South India, the association between diabetic peripheral neuropathy and depressive symptoms, and the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis (MESA) covering diabetic cardiomyopathy and subclinical cardiovascular disease.
