@Lavina pinto:- Kindly refer to the answer provided by Rohangrr,although I would like to provide you the answer of your last question- Diabetes is caused when there is increase in blood sugar level due to decrease in the secretion of hormone insulin by the pancreas. Insulin maintains the level of sugar in the blood so when it is secreted in low amount, person suffers from Diabetes.

Phytohormones are as the name implies plant derived building blocks that your body can use to rapidly create any hormone that your body needs. These substances also called phytosterols are vital to a healthy balanced endocrine or hormonal system. These are not hormones; instead phytosterols are nutrients your body must have so it can support a biological function that occurs naturally in every person in this world called hormonal system modulation.

Hormones are chemical substances produced by an organ or cells of an organ in one part of your body, when you eat foods or supplements that contain these essential nutrients

2. No one knows what causes diabetes, but scientists are working hard to find out. There are three major types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational. Type 1 diabetes usually develops in children, teenagers or young adults. Scientists believe this is a genetically caused condition and is not related to lifestyle habits. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy and usually disappears after the baby is born.

Treatment: Under your doctor’s care, take insulin by needle or pump every day, eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and monitor blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol.
