What Is Type 3 Diabetes?

Type 3 diabetes is a potentially new form of the disease. Although scientists do not know an extensive amount of information concerning it and don't even agree that it exists, some details are being researched.

Type 3 diabetes is a hybrid form of the disease. It appears that having type 1 or type 2 diabetes is necessary for developing this new form. Scientists also know that having excess weight helps to set the stage for it as well.

Due to its relatively new appearance in the medical community, there are only a few symptoms of type 3 diabetes that have been directly associated with type 3 diabetes. They include an increased heart rate and spikes in glucose levels. What causes them to occur? Researchers have pinned the cause on something that we are all subject to: electropollution.

What is electropollution? It is the electrical fields that are generated from the use of electrical appliances. Everything from cell phones and computers, TVs, microwaves and even fluorescent light bulbs are the cause of this invisible form of energy around us. Scientists do know is that some people are more sensitive to this type of energy than others, and women appear to be more at risk than men. However, it is not know whether or not electropollution is truly harmful or whether it can influence diabetes.

While avoiding electrical fields is extremely difficult in this day and time, it is possible to reduce exposure. Walking outside instead of on a treadmill in one way. Limiting exposure to television and computer screens are another. Holding your cell phone away from your head or even utilizing the speaker-phone option is helpful. Of course, maintaining your proper weight and avoiding type 1 or 2 diabetes should be your focus, regardless of whether or not type 3 diabetes exists.
