The normal fasting blood glucose level is about 90mg./dL (5 mmol L). After a carbohydrate meal, glucose level increases to about 160 mg./dL (8.9 mmol L) in one hour to return to the fasting level in about 2 hours. The decrease is due to insulin. Insulin is a hormone secreted by beta cells in the pancreas. Pancreas is deeply seated behind the stomach. Insulin secretion is stimulated by increase in blood glucose level. If insulin is not available or ineffective, we have diabetes mellitus. Blood glucose is high and does not return to the normal fasting level. When blood glucose level exceeds 160 mg./dL, glucose will be excreted in the urine. Thus the name "Diabetes mellitus " which is a greek name meaning excessive urination "Diabetes" of sweet urine.
