Pancreatic Diabetes Treatment in Ahmedabad

Type 3c diabetes is a form of diabetes that occurs as a result of damage or dysfunction to the pancreas, specifically the cells responsible for producing insulin. This damage can be caused by various conditions, such as chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, cystic fibrosis, or surgical removal of the pancreas.

Since the pancreas plays a crucial role in insulin production, any impairment to its functioning can lead to insulin deficiency and, consequently, diabetes. Type 3c diabetes shares similarities with both type 1 diabetes (insulin deficiency) and type 2 diabetes (insulin resistance).

Despite much study, there is no treatment for type 1 diabetes. To avoid complications, treatment focuses on controlling blood sugar levels with insulin, food, and lifestyle changes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Type 3c can happen when the pancreas is damaged and it stops producing enough insulin for the body. And we all need insulin to live. It allows the glucose (or sugar) in our blood to enter our cells and fuel our bodies. If you have type 3c diabetes your pancreas will also stop producing the enzyme you need to digest food.

Yes — pancreatitis is a known cause of type 3c diabetes; chronic pancreatitis causes nearly 80% of all type 3c cases. About 1.8% of patients with adult-onset diabetes have type 3c as a result of pancreatitis. However, far too many are misdiagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

Treatment should begin with lifestyle modifications in the form of weight control, daily exercise, abstinence from alcohol, and smoking cessation. Insulin replacement therapy is the only effective treatment in patients with advanced pancreatic diabetes and severe malnutrition.
