Diabetes is called "Silent Killer" in many western countries as its symptoms are often hidden and subtle. Most of people do not realize they have been affected by the disease until it develops into very severe stage. However, if you can pay more attention to some abnormal changes, you may find Diabetes in a very early time.
The causes of Type I Diabetes can divided into the following aspects:
1, the cells to generate the insulin in the pancreas of the patients have been damaged completely, and then the pancreas lost the function to secret insulin. When the body is in lack of insulin, the blood sugar level will keep rising. Then the diabetes appears. For the Type I Diabetes, about more than 80% of pancreas βcells are damaged. Because most of the β cells have been damaged, any factor to activate the secretion of insulin can stimulate the cells to generate insulin, which lead to the absolute lack of insulin and which is easy to lead to ketosis.
In the blood of Type I Diabetes patients, we can find various immune antibodies, such as glutamicacid decarboxylase enzyme antibodies, islet cell antibodies and so on. These kinds of abnormal antibodies will damage the βcells and affect the secretion of the insulin.
3, genetic factor
According to the latest research, the genetic defects are the basis for the onset of Type I Diabetes. And the genetic defects can manifest as the abnormal human leukocyte antigen on the sixth to chromosome. And the study indicates that the onset of Type I Diabetes has one characteristic. If one of your parents suffers from diabetes, you are more likely to suffer this disease.
4, virus infection is also an incentive for Type I Diabetes. Many scientists found that there usually were the virus infections before the onset of dialysis. What’s more, the “prevailing” of diabetes usually is after the prevalent of virus. For example, the virus which can cause the angina parotidea and rubella and the Coxsackie virus family which can cause the poliomyelitis all are the incentives of Type I Diabetes.
5, other factors, such as milk, oxygen radical, raticide and so on, it is still in the study for whether these can cause diabetes.
What should we do to better protect our kidneys?
In order to treat diabetes and kidney disease at the same time, Immunotherapy is needed for them. The Immunotherapy have strong ability to produce many kinds of cells of organs. So they can provide healthy cells for pancreas and kidneys and these cells can repair these organs in order to return them to normal. In this way, the pancreas can secret enough insulin to reduce the blood sugar. Thereby the normal blood sugar would not damage the graft kidney again.
Immunotherapy is not a surgery but just an injection which brings to no pain and no discomfort. So it is very suitable for patients who want to cast off diabetes and kidney disease after kidney transplant.
