supplies come from food and it enters the body through liver. Usually the insulin supply in the body is sufficient to regulate
sugar levels. However diabetes condition does not produce sufficient insulin to regularize sugar in the bloodThe following are the types of diabetes: Diabetes of Type-1 finds pancreas secreting small quantities of insulin or not at all secreting insulin since the cells controlling glucose levels are dead, because the body kills the pancreatic cells, in an autoimmune effect. This type can result through many of our lifestyle habits like alcohol, or through infections or surgical removal of pancreas. This type of diabetes can affect children because of inherited causes and sometimes due to stress in children. Those affected with this type of diabetes, will have to depend on insulin injections for survival.The other kind of diabetes, Type-2 results when the pancreas produces insulin but cells may have developed insulin resistance and reduced insulin
levels to bring down sugar levels in our bodies. This diabetes only occurs in adults. This may occur due to aging, obesity and sedentary lifestyle. It is not dependant on insulin, but can be controlled through exercise, diet, and oral medicines.
When diabetes attacks children, through inability of pancreas to produce insulin, juvenile diabetes can occur. This is usually a hereditary condition. This condition cannot be controlled, and would require artificial supply of insulin to body throughinjection, on day to day basis.
Services typically sought by travelers include elective procedures as well as complex specialized surgeries such as joint replacement (knee/hip), cardiac surgery, dental surgery, and cosmetic surgeries. However, virtually every type of health care, including psychiatry, alternative treatments, convalescent care and even burial services are available.
Over 50 countries have identified medical tourism as a national industry. However, accreditation and other measures of quality vary widely across the globe, and some destinations may become hazardous or even dangerous for medical tourists.
In the context of global health, "medical tourism" is a pejorative because during such trips health care providers often practice outside of their areas of expertise or hold different (i.e., lower) standards of care. Greater numbers than ever before of student volunteers, health professions trainees, and researchers from resource-rich countries are working temporarily and anticipating future work in resource-starved areas. This emphasizes the importance of understanding this other definition.
