    Diabetic Retinopathy: Cause, Symptoms, Treatment and Cure

    Diabetic retinopathy, is retinopathy (damage to the retina) caused by complications of diabetes, which can eventually lead to blindness. The retina is the light-sensitive layer of cells at the back of the eye converting light into electrical signals. The signals are sent to the brain through the optic nerve and the brain interprets them to produce the images. To work effectively, the retina needs a constant supply of blood, which it receives through a network of tiny blood vessels. Over time, a continuously high blood sugar level...

    What is Type 2 Diabetes? Its causes and Precautions

    Type 2 diabetes can occur in all ages of people but mostly common after 45 age. Most of the time people even don’t realise they have type 2 diabetes until and unless it shows major symptoms. The risk factor increases when you have family history of diabetes. In a healthy person, insulin hormone converts sugar into glucose which is a source of energy for a living cells in an efficient manner. Glucose then enters the bloodstream, which stimulates the pancreas to release insulin in the right amount. Excess of glucose is stored in the......

    Know more about Type-II Diabetes

    Type II diabetes, once called non-insulin-dependent diabetes, is the most common form of diabetes.

  • Insulin Production by recombinant DNA technology for diabetis treatment

    Insulin Production by recombinant DNA technology for diabetis treatment

    Synthetic human insulin was the first golden molecule of the biotech industry and the direct result of recombinant DNA technology. Currently millions of diabetic worldwide use synthetic insulin to regulate their blood sugar level. Synthetic insulin is made in bacteria and yeast.InsulinInsulin is a peptide hormone produced by beta cells in the pancreas and its main function is to regulate carbohydrate and fat metabolismin the body. Insulin stops the use of fat as energy source by inhibiting the release of glucagon.  It is a protein hormone....
