Diabetes - Cause

While these are the most common causes, there are two main factors that lead to diabetes. One is when pancreas produces insufficient insulin or do not produce insulin at all and second one is the inability of the body to use insulin properly. As we mentioned earlier, there are three types of diabetes so the causes for all three of them vary. 

Causes of Type 1 diabetes:

Type 1 diabetes is caused when your immune system destroys the cells that are produced in pancreas to make insulin. This leads to insulin insufficiency, needed by the body to function normally. This reason is called as autoimmune reaction, as the body attacks itself.

Some triggers that may be involved in this are:

- Chemical toxins in foods items.

- Infection (viral or bacterial).

- Unidentified component causing autoimmune reaction.

Causes of Type 2 diabetes:

The reason behind type 2 diabetes is mostly family history. Though there are a variety of other factors causing type 2 diabetes, some of them are:



-Sedentary lifestyle

-Bad diet 

Causes for Gestational diabetes:

The cause for this type of diabetes is still unknown. However, there are a plenty of risk factors including:


-Family history

-Polycystic ovary syndrome

-The baby is overweight

Apart from all these reasons, there can be many others which can cause diabetes. Some of them are listed below:

- Insulin resistance

- Cushing’s syndrome: This syndrome increases cortisol hormones which lead to increased blood sugar levels. So, an abundance of cortisol hormone can cause diabetes.

- Steroid diabetes: It’s a rare form of diabetes which occurs due to prolonged use of glucocorticoid therapy.

What Is a cardiac risk?

What is a cardiac risk calculator? Assessing cardiovascular risk involves taking a number of measurements and calculating the percentage risk of heart problems. A cardiac risk calculator takes data for an individual's predictors of disease, such as  blood pressure , and compares the results with population-level statistics. Based on this information, the calculator tries to predict their chances of ASCVD, and the person will find out their percentage risk of having heart and blood vessel problems. This information can help the individual take measures to prevent cardiovascular health issues, if necessary. If the risk is very low, no further screening or treatment is necessary. If the calculator shows a high risk, a health professional will discuss lifestyle adjustments and other measures that may prevent an adverse event. People undergoing treatment for a cardiovascular condition will probably not use a calculator, as they are already managing their risks through treatment. Measura

Flames Calculator

How does this flames calculator work? It is always hard to define the  relationship between two people  in a simple word like friendship,  love , affection and enemy or to predict the outcome, like  marriage . The above tool tries to find the answer to questions likes "what is our relationship?" or to give you a sense of what is going on between you and another person. You are only asked to enter the two names between which you want to calculate the relationship. The flames calculator is based on quite a simple algorithm in which  FLAMES  stands for: ■  F riendship; ■  L ove; ■  A ffection; ■  M arriage; ■  E nemy; ■  S iblings. The FLAMES test is actually a  compatibility analysis   that reveals to what extent the  relationship between two persons can go , defining that into 6 simple words. You can use it as a  love meter  to see whether you and your crush have any chance to get serious or simply to see what future holds between you and the person you just met. This is just

Learn Analog

The Analog clock: At first, it’s best to focus on ensuring the child understands the significance of each hand: When we start playing with the clock, first of all, we teach the hours, before we start moving the minute hand five minutes at a time: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55. Once they’ve played with the clock for a while, and understand what each hand indicates, we can teach them quarters; a quarter of an hour, half an hour, and three-quarters of an hour. At the same time, we can show them the time on a digital clock, which helps simplify the exercise since the exact minutes are shown in number form. Since the numbers on an analog clock only go up to 12 and a day consists of 24 hours, when we read the time in analog we need to add  “am”   or  “pm”  to indicate the correct time.
