Diabetes has been an age-old chronic illness, affecting not just the old but also young equally. Sadly, there is no cure for it, but it can very well be treated thoroughly.
Diabetes develops when the body can’t properly use the naturally produced sugar which is glucose, an essential fuel for our bodies to function. To enter the cells, glucose needs a hormone produced by the pancreas called insulin. In people with diabetes, their bodies either don't produce enough insulin or the insulin they do produce is used poorly. Glucose then builds up in the blood, which leads to increased blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). Over time, high blood glucose causes irreversible complications for the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and blood vessels.
