Carbohydrate Metabolism in Diabetes

In diabetes, carbohydrate metabolism is disrupted due to either insufficient insulin production or an inability of the body's cells to respond properly to insulin. Elevated blood sugar levels in diabetes can cause damage to various organs and tissues in the body, including the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels. In type 2 diabetes, the body's cells become resistant to insulin, causing blood sugar levels to rise and the pancreas to produce more insulin to compensate. Over time, this can lead to a decline in insulin production and worsening of the condition. Treatment for diabetes typically involves a combination of lifestyle modifications, such as exercise and diet changes, and medications, such as insulin injections or oral medications that help lower blood sugar levels. Carbohydrate counting, which involves tracking the amount of carbohydrates consumed in each meal or snack, can be a helpful tool for managing blood sugar levels in diabetes.
