9. Hormonal Problems
Hormonal problems or diseases can create situations in which the body produces too much or too little of a particular hormone. This can result in creating a resistance to insulin in the cells of the body. Crushing’s syndrome occurs when there is too much cortisol in the body. Acromegaly occurs when growth hormones are created too rapidly or too early. Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid is functioning at way too high of a level, creating too much thyroid hormone. Any of these conditions can cause diabetes, due to the upsetting of the natural amount of insulin that is in the body.
