Causes and Risk Factors for Diabetes
Stress and Tension
Stress can be emotional or physical, such as a surgery or a serious infection, an accident or an emotional shock. Another very urban trait, the high-stress lifestyle, not just amongst the young upwardly mobile, but increasingly in all walks of life, is a relatively new phenomenon. Since there is a known connection between stress and diabetes mellitus, those who are under stress and/or lead an irregular lifestyle, need to take adequate precautions and make necessary lifestyle adjustments.
Pancreatic insufficiency caused by stress can lead to diabetes. Grief, worry and anxiety resulting from death of a close relative, loss of a joy, business failure and strained marital relationships all influence metabolism and may cause sugar to appear in the urine.
Diabetes may be associated with some grave organic disorders like cancer, tuberculosis and cerebral diseases. Diabetes may also be caused by a variety of other factors. These include certain metabolic and genetic disorders, inadequate secretion of insulin by the pancreas, malfunctioning of other endocrine glands like thyroid, pituitary and adrenal, excessive consumption of alcohol and the use of the certain drugs.
Although the reasons are unclear, people of certain races are more likely to develop diabetes than others.
