Diabete is a disorder in the metabolism of sugars in the body, in which either there is not enough insulin in the body, or the existing insulin is not able to do its function properly, and as a result, there is resistance to it and Blood sugar rises.Insulin is a hormone that is secreted by “beta” cells located in the pancreas gland and its main task is to reduce blood sugar. Pancreas is also one of the glands of the digestive system, which is located behind the stomach. High blood sugar in the long term causes complications in the cardiovascular system, kidneys, eyes and nervous system.

 Complications: Diabetic people are at risk of neuropathy and vascular disorders such as stroke, retinopathy and nephropathy.

Type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes accounts for 10-15% of all diabetes cases. This type of diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the beta cells of the pancreas are destroyed by the body’s immune system and insulin is either not produced or secreted in small amounts. For this reason, people with this type of diabetes must provide the body with insulin in the form of daily injections from the time of diagnosis.  Type 1 diabetes often occurs under the age of 30.

Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is more common in adults over 30 years old and obese, and includes 90-85% of all diabetes cases. In this disease, in fact, either the pancreas does not secrete enough insulin, or the secreted insulin lacks the necessary efficiency due to insulin resistance, especially in obese people.  This type of diabetes is often controlled by changing diet and lifestyle, but drug therapy such as oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin may be necessary.

 Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes occurs in women who develop glucose intolerance during this period.  This type of diabetes is usually transient and occurs in the 24th and 28th weeks of pregnancy. This disease generally improves after the end of pregnancy. Women with gestational diabetes are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

 Thus, in these patients, it is important to use products that do not increase blood sugar and do not contain carbohydrates and sugar compounds. Entera meal powder is suitable as a vitamin supplement for diabetics.
