Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder in which the blood sugar goes higher than the normal due low or no insulin or sometimes due to lack of cell receptors for the insulin .

TYPES:

* Type 1 :This might be due to an auto immune diseases where the beta cells are destroyed by our own immune system ,where the pancreas fails to secrete insulin .
* Type 2 : Because of the improper functioning of brain signal pathway the body fails to utilise the secreted insulin (due to toxins and older circulating hormones in the blood due to improper liver function ).Lack of cell receptors to receive insulin into the cell along with glucose .,

According to ancient siddha science type is diabetes is been classified as 20
