The cells of the human body need glucose to function normally, as glucose is the essential source of energy, and glucose enters these cells with the help of a hormone called insulin.
In case there is an insufficient amount of insulin, or if a problem occurs in the cells responding to the insulin correctly, the process of entering the sugar into the cells from the blood stops, and thus the sugar accumulates in the blood which is expressed by the high level of sugar in the blood and this is what happens in patients with diabetes usually.
First type: the problem is the body cannot produce enough insulin, or insulin is not produced at all.
Second type: the problem lies in the absence of one or both of the following two factors:
The poor response of cells and tissues to insulin causes high blood sugar, due to the difficulty of sugar entering the cells.
In cases of high blood sugar, the pancreas responds and produces more insulin, contributing in the entrance of excess sugar into the cells.
In type 2 diabetes, and because of the chronic high level of sugar in the blood, the pancreas produces large amounts of insulin, but the cells do not respond to it as supposed, causing fatigue of the pancreas, thereby losing its ability to produce insulin in the long term, converting of type 2 diabetes into a condition similar to type 1, which obliges the patient to use insulin as a necessary treatment.
It is worth mentioning that there are several reasons for the poor response to insulin, the most common are:
