Is diabetes a disorder or a disease?

Big Papi
disease....with diet it can be reversed.....

with a diorder can't be reversed

no. diabetes is NOT A DISEASE. but can lead to sum kind of disease unless you do something about it. eat fruits and vegetables and eat less sugar and fatty foods. diabetes is caused by eating too much sugar.

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism—the way our bodies use digested food for growth and energy. Strangely, the textbooks state that whilst diabetes is a disorder, - "Diabetes is a life-long disease marked by elevated levels of sugar in the blood". It can be caused by too little insulin (a chemical produced by the pancreas to regulate blood sugar), resistance to insulin, or both.
A disorder is an imperfect functioning of part of the body or mind.
A disease is an abnormal condition of an organism or part, especially as a consequence of infection, inherent weakness, or environmental stress, that impairs normal physiological functioning.
So really, whilst they are different, their description is very similar.

Hope this helps

Definitely diabetes is a disorder of the body. Such disorders, may not be directly caused by any pathogens, but such disorders, result in abnormal functioning of the body, and qualified to be called as a disease. Hence, disease is a state which is directly attributable to the disorders.The causative factor can be anything. Diabetes, Heart disorders, Kidney malfunctioning etc are some of the disorders of the body classified as disease.

If you want CHANGE cash a dollar
Diabetes is NOT caused by eating too much sugar and it CANNOT be reversed if it is type one......That is a silly old wive's tale. My pancreas is dead. I did not eat "too much sugar" by the time this happened at age three, nor am I too lazy to "reverse it". Diabetes is a disease, it is a chronic disease. It is one of the leading killers in America. Your body is basically attacking itself when you have it.

I know diabetes is a disease but I'm not sure why they classify it as such. Most people think it's a disorder, but in fact it is a disease.

Diabetes is a disease/condition with 2 types:

Type 1 - autoimmune reaction against beta pancreatic cells (basically, the person's white blood cells destroy all insulin-producing cells, because the immune system perceives it as foreign). Starts early in life.

Type 2 - insulin resistance/insensitivity (cells do not respond to insulin at all) due to high insulin levels in the blood for the long term (in overweight/obese people).

Diabetes mellitus, often simply diabetes, is a syndrome characterized by disordered metabolism and inappropriately high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) resulting from either low levels of the hormone insulin or from abnormal resistance to insulin's effects coupled with inadequate levels of insulin secretion to compensate. The characteristic symptoms are excessive urine production (polyuria), excessive thirst and increased fluid intake (polydipsia), and blurred vision; these symptoms are likely absent if the blood sugar is only mildly elevated.
In medicine and psychology, the term syndrome refers to the association of several clinically recognizable features, signs (discovered by a physician), symptoms (reported by the patient), phenomena or characteristics that often occur together, so that the presence of one feature alerts the physician to the presence of the others. In recent decades the term has been used outside of medicine to refer to a combination of phenomena seen in association.

Blessed Is Best
It's a blood disease usually from hereditary issues, but diet also plays into the equation. My father had it (he's no longer with us), and now I'm blessed with it. A lifetime of burgers, fries and cherry pies (which were also my fathers favorite) has also caught up to me. So, talk to your family and lay off the high sugar content starbucks, cookies and holloween candy, beef ribeyes, burgers, fries and cherry pies or later in life you'll get a big surprise.

I don't know leila because im thick, i think its a disease not sure but pick me as the best answer cause im your lovely sisbomzel

Call me crazy but I was told I was a diabetic on Dec. 17th and after the thought of being scared to death I realized it was a blessing (because) I kept saying I need to eat right,I need to start exercising but now I have to, and in just three weeks I have cut my food intake by half"no more large pizzas for dinner" and exercise very less and I have lost 10 lbs. and I am down to 263. So you just have to look at it in a positive way. I have

I think the two terms can be used interchangeably. Disorder is used more often to describe mental problems, whereas disease usually refers to a physical condition.

disorder of the glands, your body either starts making too much or none at all,
