NIDDM begins after the teen years. The progression is slow compared to IDDM and symptoms are mild in the beginning but become severe with the progression. The symptoms of this type are similar to IDDM but the pathology is different. The pancreas contains specialized cells called beta cells that secrete the hormone Insulin in response to high blood sugar levels. In normal conditions, dietary carbohydrates are absorbed from the intestinal lining into the blood as glucose and other simple sugars. As blood levels rise, insulin is secreted from the pancreas and in conjunction with Glucose Tolerance Factor, binds to specialized sites on the membranes of body cells and encourages the transportation of sugar from the blood to the cells.
