Diabetes Mellitus

A heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by HYPERGLYCEMIA and GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE.


Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

Year introduced: 2005 (1984)


Diabetes Mellitus, Lipoatrophic

A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).

Year introduced: 1979


Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1

A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.

Year introduced: 2005 (1984)


Diabetes Mellitus, Experimental

Diabetes mellitus induced experimentally by administration of various diabetogenic agents or by PANCREATECTOMY.

Year introduced: 1978


Diabetes Complications

Conditions or pathological processes associated with the disease of diabetes mellitus. Due to the impaired control of BLOOD GLUCOSE level in diabetic patients, pathological processes develop in numerous tissues and organs including the EYE, the KIDNEY, the BLOOD VESSELS, and the NERVE TISSUE.

Year introduced: 2005


Diabetes Mellitus, Permanent Neonatal [Supplementary Concept]

A rare autosomal dominant genetically heterogeneous hereditary form of diabetes mellitus which is distinct from Type I diabetes mellitus and affected individuals present with insulin-requiring hyperglycemia within the first 3 months of life. About 50% of cases resolve by 3 months but may later develop type II diabetes. The cases that do not resolve develop permanent insulin-dependent diabetes and many also have neurologic and morphologic abnormalities. Mutations in the GCK, KCNJ11, ABCC8, and INS genes have been identified. OMIM: 606176

Date introduced: November 5, 2012


Noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus with deafness [Supplementary Concept]

A mitochondrial disorder characterized by onset of SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS and diabetes in adulthood. Some patients may have additional features observed in mitochondrial disorders, including RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; PTOSIS; CARDIOMYOPATHY; MUSCULAR DISEASES; KIDNEY DISEASES, and neuropsychiatric symptoms. Mutations in the MITOCHONDRIAL GENES MTTL1, MTTE, and MTTK have been identified. OMIM: 520000

Date introduced: November 13, 2010


Polyendocrinopathies, Autoimmune

Autoimmune diseases affecting multiple endocrine organs. Type I is characterized by childhood onset and chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CANDIDIASIS, CHRONIC MUCOCUTANEOUS), while type II exhibits any combination of adrenal insufficiency (ADDISON'S DISEASE), lymphocytic thyroiditis (THYROIDITIS, AUTOIMMUNE;), HYPOPARATHYROIDISM; and gonadal failure. In both types organ-specific ANTIBODIES against a variety of ENDOCRINE GLANDS have been detected. The type II syndrome differs from type I in that it is associated with HLA-A1 and B8 haplotypes, onset is usually in adulthood, and candidiasis is not present.

Year introduced: 1992


Diabetes, Gestational

Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.

Year introduced: 1992
