Hypertension can be primary or essential when there is no obvious precipitating factor, or the much less common secondary hypertension where there is much identifiable cause.

    In case of Essential hypertension there is no specific cause.

    Primary hypertension if left untreated it increases the risk of heart failure, kidney problems, stroke and diabetes.

    Causes of secondary hypertension :

  • Acute and chronic glomerulonephrites
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Wilm’s tumour

    Diabetes

    Type 1 Diabetes

    Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition. It's caused by the body attacking its own cells with antibodies. The Beta cells of the pancreas produce insulin. The beta cells of the pancreas are damaged by the body’s own immune system. This results in inadequate amount of insulin production.
    Type 1 diabetes is also called insulin-dependent diabetes.
    It often occurs in childhood and also called juvenile-onset diabetes.

    Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes

  • Excessive thirst
  • Excessive hunger
  • Frequent urination
  • Weakness and lassitude
  • Weight loss
  • Type 2 Diabetes

    Environmental factors like sedentary lifestyle, generous dietary intake and obesity influences the occurrence of Type2 Diabetes Mellitus.

    It has two physiologic defects:

  • Reduced action of insulin in target tissues muscles and fat.(Insulin Resistance)
  • Abnormal Insulin Secretion
  • Normally, the sugars and carbohydrates from our food is converted into glucose in our body. Cells require insulin which is produced by pancreas. Insulin helps to transport glucose from blood stream to liver and cells for metabolism. When pancreas do not produce adequate amount of insulin or if it can't use the insulin it produces, the person may suffer from Diabetes.

Levels between 110 milligram per dl and 126 milligram per dl are considered as impared fasting glucose ,such individuals are at risk of developing Diabetes later. The diagnosis of diabetes is made when the blood sugar levels are 126 milligram dl or higher than that.
