Other types of diabetes

Other types of diabetes are a rare spontaneous receptive form in which the production of insulin in the pancreas is impaired due to various health conditions and conditions in the body. It differs from the characteristics of type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. The word “other type” here is the name of a category of diabetes.

Other types of diabetes are caused by specific health conditions and various diseases. There is a variety of other sorts of diabetes, which are even as important.

About 2% of people have this type of diabetes.


Various reasons for Other types of diabetes:

  1. Different types of monogenic diabetes can occur. For example cystic fibrosis.
  2. Due to the rare syndrome.
  3. May also be for surgery.
  4. It can also be caused by various drugs or chemical side effects. Such as antipsychotics.
  5. Diabetes can also be caused by an excess of a certain number of hormones or an imbalance of different hormones. For example, growth hormone.
  6. Some of the body’s receptors also do not respond to insulin. Although insulin levels are normal, they are different from type 2 diabetes. This type of diabetes is extremely uncommon.
  7. Genetic mutations (autosomal or mitochondrial) can cause cell function defects. Abnormal insulin action is genetically determined in some cases.

  8. This type of disease can cause diabetes by causing a lot of damage to the pancreas. Such as chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis.
  9. Excessive secretion of anti-insulin hormones can lead to diabetes. (Normal hormone supplements are resolved after removal).
  10. Many drugs disrupt insulin secretion and some toxins damage the pancreas, others increase insulin resistance. For example, glucocorticoids can exacerbate “steroid diabetes”.
  11. Diabetes can also be caused by malnutrition in the body.
  12. Various infections can also be caused by the disease.

I am a digital marketer. First, after the institutional writing-reading, I do not have a job as an accountant in a diagnostic center, then I worked for seven long years as a medical representative in marketing at the reputed institution Ibn Sina Pharmaceutical Industry Ltd. in Bangladesh. Now I have been blogging on “Diet Control for Diabetes” and working on digital marketing for two years. I like to learn. We constantly try to understand the world we live in. I like to read about anything related to history, sociology, religion, politics, business, finance, and human potential maximization. I like playing cricket very much. Also, I like to watch different games. If you are ready to start discussing your marketing needs, you can contact writer.ashraf@gmail.com at this email.
