What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a common group of chronic metabolic diseases that cause high blood sugar (glucose) levels in the body due to defects in insulin production or function. Diabetes is also known as diabetes mellitus to distinguish it from a relatively rare metabolic disorder called diabetes insipidus that doesn’t affect blood sugar. Symptoms of diabetes occur when a lack of insulin or insulin resistance stops glucose

Types of Diabetes Diabetes is categorized into two main categories and one subcategory, but all are typified by problems of insulin resulting in high blood sugar levels in the body. The categories are: Type 1 Diabetes This type of diabetes is categorized as an autoimmune disease and occurs when the body’s misdirected immune system attacks and destroys insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Although genetic or environmental triggers are suspected, the exact cause of type 1 diabetes—once referred to as insulindependent or juvenile-onset diabetes—is not

Type 2 Diabetes This type most often develops gradually with age and is characterized by insulin resistance in the body. Because of this resistance, the body’s fat, liver, and muscle cells are unable to take in and store glucose, which is used for energy. The glucose remains in the blood. The abnormal buildup of glucose (blood sugar) can result in hyperglycemia and impaired body functions. Type 2 diabetes occurs most often in people who are overweight because fat interferes with the body’s ability to use insulin, but it also can occur in thin people and the elderly. Family history and genetics play a major role in type 2 diabetes, and inactivity and poor diet can also

increase the risk.

Gestational Diabetes Gestational diabetes is defined as blood-sugar elevation during pregnancy and is known to affect about three to eight percent of women. Left undiagnosed or untreated, it can lead to problems such as high birth weight and breathing problems for the baby. Gestational diabetes usually resolves in the mother after the baby is born, but statistics show that women who have gestational diabetes have a much greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes within five to 10 years. Prediabetes This condition is marked by blood sugar levels that are too high to be considered normal but are not yet high enough to be in the range of a typical diabetes diagnosis. Prediabetes increases not only your risk of developing diabetes but also heart disease. l

early as 1200 B.C., yet occupation in the epicentral area was no earlier than 650 B.C. and lasted no later than A.D. 950. Caracol boasts 53 carved stone monuments (25 stelae and 28 altars), and more than 250 burials and 200 caches.[5] Its ancient name is read Uxwitza’ (hispaniHistory cised, “Oxhuitza”) which translates as The Caracol area “Three Hill Water” was occupied as from which the Early

Classic title Ux Witz Ajaw, or “Three Hills Lord” was derived. This place name may also reference the Three Stone Place of creation. By the Early Classic (between A.D. 250-550) Caracol was tied into extensive trade networks and pan-lowland ideological systems, leading to a unified regional economy The Caracol was officially founded in A.D. 331 (8.14.13.10.4) by Te’

Lord Water (Yajaw Te’ K’inich II) acceded to power in A.D. 553 under the auspices of Tikal’s Lord Double Bird (Wak Chan K’awiil). Then, in A.D. 556 Tikal enacted a ch’ak (axe) war event, and defeated Caracol; this caused Lord Water to enact the first know star-war event in 562, and defeated Tikal’s Lord Wak Chan K’awiil (Double Bird).This is the earliest recorded star-war event, and is the cause of the archaeologically and epigraphically demonstrated Tikal mid-Classic hiatus,

which saw a decline in Tikal’s population, a cessation of monument erection, and the destruction of certain monuments in the Great Plaza. This 120 year long hiatus at Tikal occurred as Caracol’s population and monumental construction increased, and the site became more prosperous and cohesive.

Caracol was at first a client state of the more powerful city of Tikal, 76 km to the northwest. Tikal’s influence weakened during the mid-sixth century; losing control of Naranjo, located halfway between the two cities (42 km from each site), to rival Calakmul. In A.D. 531, Lord K’an I acceded to the throne.
