Several potential risk factors have been identified in diabetes as well as the factors that cause this disease.
It is not yet known exactly what causes type 1 diabetes. However, it is considered that the risk is slightly increased in people with relatives affected by this disease. Environmental factors and exposure to certain viral infections are also associated with risk of Type 1 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes includes several risk factors, including:
The Hereditary Factor: History of Family Diabetes. Individuals with family members of type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of developing the same disease.
Unhealthy Diet: When we eat too much refined carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, dough, cakes or juices) and saturated fat, too little fruit and vegetables increases weight and thus increases the risk of diabetes.
Sedentarism and Weight: Studies have shown that 30 minutes of moderate movement are enough for one day for 5 days a week to stay healthy and reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Between 65 and 80% of new types of type 2 diabetes are associated with obesity or obesity. The risk is related to the age at which excess weight and obesity began to accumulate as well as weight accumulation during adulthood.
And reduced birth weight is a possible risk indicator for developing Type 2 diabetes.
Age: The older one, the greater the risk of diabetes. However, type 2 diabetes increases in all age groups and is often found even in children and adolescents.
Changes in glucose tolerance (prediabetes): The body does not respond adequately to secretion of insulin, and blood glucose levels can not be maintained within normal limits.
Gestational Diabetes: Women who have diabetes-induced pregnancy have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes is also associated with an increased risk of obesity and abnormal glucose metabolism in children born out of these pregnancies.
Socio-economic factors contribute to the development of diabetes and the onset of its complications due to living conditions that fuel unhealthy food choices.
