This animated video is a presentation about the symptoms, causes and types of diabetes. Diabetes is caused by insufficient insulin in the blood stream to control the blood glucose levels. Insulin is secreted by Beta cells that are in the Islets of Langerhans region of the Pancreas. Insulin helps the cells of the body to get calories from the glucose present in the blood stream. During Type 1 diabetes, the white blood cells mistake the Beta cells from the Pancreas for foreign invaders in an auto-immune response. As a result, they destroy the Beta cells by secreting anti bodies and hence the Pancreas produces little or no more insulin, leading to hyperglycaemia. The symptoms of hyperglycaemia in Type 1 diabetes are; excessive hunger, excessive thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight-loss, fatigue, weakness, irritability, and blurry vision. Watch the video for a detailed explanation on Diabetes 1.
