Observations

¿Qué es la Diabetes Mellitus?

Diabetes is defined as a disorder in the metabolism of the hydrates of carbon, las grasas y las proteínas causado por una deficiencia de insulina, It can be absolute or relative.

Insulin is a hormone secreted in the beta cells of the pancreas, whose production allows to control blood sugar (blood glucose levels). Insulin deficiency causes a deterioration in the capacity of tissues to use nutrients, that translates into an increase of glucose in blood (Hyperglycemia).

Diabetes is classified according to the disease in humans, that is to say, as type I and type II.

The type I It is characterized by the destruction of beta cells, What determines the loss progressive and complete end of insulin secretion. Los perros que sufren la Diabetes Mellitus de tipo I pueden tener un comienzo repentino de síntomas debido a la pérdida rápida de la capacidad de producir insulina. These cases require insulinización from the time of diagnosis and are called diabetics 1,811 (DMID).

Other dogs may have a gradual loss of insulin secretion, that their beta cells will be destroyed with slow. Estos animales pueden tener un período inicial en el que la hiperglucemia sea leve o de fácil control, in which case it's diabetic insulinoindependientes (DMIID), Although in the long term these dogs also need her.

Diabetes Mellitus type II es un poco más difícil de entender y se caracteriza por lo que llamamos «resistencia a la insulina» y por células beta «disfuncionales». The secretion of insulin by these cells will be high, low or normal, but not enough to overcome the resistance to it in the peripheral tissues.

It´s, to explain it in a graphic way, It is as if peripheral tissues do not obey the orders of the insulin or were not able to do what send it.

En cuanto al metabolismo o síntesis de glucosa, These dogs may have DMID or DMIID, that is to say, necesitar o no insulina según la magnitud de la insulinorresistencia y del estado funcional de las células beta en cuanto a su capacidad de producir y secretar la hormona en cantidades bajas, normal or high.

Dogs also recognizes a secondary diabetes, produced by a carbohydrate intolerance (glucose) due to the presence of a disease or a drug treatment that it antagonizes or counteracts the effects of insulin and can lead to the exhaustion of the beta cells of the pancreas with the appearance of diabetes insulinodependiente.

The owners of diabetic dogs should be aware that the routine in the treatment with insulin and food has to be respected. Dos dosis fijas de insulina al día asociadas a un alimento palatable que proporcione siempre la misma fuente y la misma cantidad de almidón, always run at the same time it can reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in diabetic dogs.

In North America, area where the Australian Terrier is very popular, se está llevando a cabo una investigación científica sobre la incidencia de esta enfermedad.
