Illnesses that Can Cause Secondary Diabetes

Gallstones, too much alcohol, and imbalances of the growth hormone, and of cortisol, which the body produces to manage stress, are three of the reasons which can cause inflammation of the pancreas, a condition known as pancreatitis.

The symptoms of pancreatitis are: abdominal pain, sometimes radiating to the back, tenderness, nausea, and fever.

An inflamed pancreas will not produce insulin, and the result is…

… Yes, you guessed it right-diabetes!

Fortunately, this kind of secondary diabetes is reversible, because once your pancreas settles down, and starts insulin production again your glucose metabolism will be ship-shape again.

However, pancreatitis is a serious matter, whether acute or chronic, and needs medical attention.
