What causes diabetes mellitus?

The current hypotheses regarding the aetiology of diabetes mellitus do not fully explain the high levels of occurrence. However, multiple hypotheses have been advanced to account for the epidemiology of diabetes mellitus. It appears that an environment with a high level of metabolic load and metabolic stress can cause disruptions in the hormonal homeostasis of an individual. These disturbances may then trigger a sequence of events that culminate in the development of diabetes mellitus.

What is the average age someone gets diabetes mellitus?

Diabetes mellitus has been found to have several risk factors, such as genetic factors, maternal history, and lifestyle factors.

In the past, those who were younger tended to get diabetes after having an unhealthy lifestyle (smoking, diet, obesity, and not enough exercise). However, the average age of diabetes diagnosis in North American and European has been rising for some time. Many doctors claim that one of the reasons is the fact that the average age of pregnancy has increased in North America and Europe.
