Diabetes Mellitus / Overview
[ send me this essay ]
A 6 page paper discussing the actions and long-term implications of the diabetes. At its core, the disease is the result of either insufficient insulin production or a decreased sensitivity to that which is produced in the body. There are two broad categories of diabetes, Type I, or insulin-dependent diabetes; and Type II, non-insulin-dependent diabetes. Type I formerly was referred to as juvenile diabetes while Type II was commonly known as adult-onset diabetes, but those terms are rarely used now that it is understood that either type can strike any age. Type II is by far the most common. Newly diagnosed cases have reached epidemic proportions worldwide, with new cases in the US increasing 50% between 1980 and 1994, with long-term complications such as kidney disease, atherosclerosis and diabetes-induced blindness similarly increasing in incidence. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Insulin Synthesis Using Recombinant Plasmid DNA
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper discussing methods of constructing this plasmid containing a gene for human insulin. As much as 5 percent of the population may be affected by diabetes, a disease of carbohydrate metabolism in which the sufferer of the disease is unable to absorb glucose from the blood. Insulin for injection has been extracted from other animals until only recently. Though bovine insulin will work for human diabetes control, the chemical differences also cause reaction in some individuals. Bacterial generation of insulin using recombinant DNA techniques has largely replaced the use of bovine insulin in cases of human diabetes. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Juvenile Diabetes
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper overview of Type I diabetes mellitus, or insulin-dependent diabetes. Formerly referred to only as juvenile diabetes, it was thought in the past that children were affected with only this type of diabetes. As it has become known that anyone of any age can be afflicted with either Type I or Type II, the term 'juvenile diabetes' has fallen out of favor, but its effects are the same regardless of how it is labeled aside from the particular ways it affects children: They often are larger than other children their age and many go through puberty sooner than their non-diabetic friends. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Ramadan: Fasting's Impact Upon Muslim Diabetics
[ send me this essay ]
7 pages in length. The extensive fasting performed during the holy months of Ramadan may have its roots firmly planted in the individual's spiritual development; however, for the diabetics who practice this sacred tradition, it poses grave consequences to their ability to effectively manage the disease. It is a known fact that the one aspect of diabetes that cannot be overlooked is the ability to eat small amounts several times a day. Without the appropriate levels of proteins and sugars available to the system, the fasting diabetic only serves to severely complicate his or her condition, ultimately threatening the chances for survival. The writer discusses the fasting of Ramadan as it relates to Muslim diabetics. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
