What are different types of diabetes?

Diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, gestational)

Type 1

Type 1 diabetes mostly develops in children and young adults of any age and therefore is popularly known as ‘juvenile diabetes'. This is a more severe form of diabetes, where the affected is dependent on insulin to manage the condition.

Type 2

Type 2 diabetes or non-insulin dependent diabetes is the most common form of this chronic condition that affects adults. It typically develops in both men and women beyond the age of 35 and above. But, in recent times, more and more younger adults are now being affected by this serious health hazard too.


Many women during their pregnancy develop another temporary form of blood sugar known as gestational diabetes. The blood sugar levels tend to increase drastically and so their bodies are unable to generate adequate amounts of insulin in order to transport the glucose into the body’s cells. In due course of time, this leads to rising levels of sugar in the body. Gestational diabetes can be controlled and managed throughout the pregnancy period with the right diet and exercise. 10% to 20% of pregnant women with gestational diabetes may require some form of blood sugar-controlling medicines. If the condition remains undiagnosed, it may put the child at risk during the birthing process.

To check thyroid function, what blood tests are used?

Thyroid function tests involve a series of blood tests that are performed to measure how well the thyroid gland is working. These tests include:

  • TSH test
  • T4 test
  • T3 test

Interpretation of these test results helps to find out whether the individual has a thyroid disorder, how severe it is, and how to treat it. It is to be noted that these tests are influenced by certain medications like contraceptive pills, steroid hormones, anti-inflammatory medications, and illnesses like heart attack, serious liver disease, and kidney failure.
