What is Diabetes?


Diabetes is a disease of insulin deficiency, where a person is not producing enough in quantity or effectiveness to regulate glucose levels. When glucose levels are elevated above normal ranges, excess glucose builds up in your bloodstream, and some of it is excreted in your urine. The aim of controlling diabetes is to prevent or mitigate the serious complications that can happen from unregulated blood sugar.
In today’s world, a person diagnosed with diabetes doesn’t need to feel lost. There are many food supplements that can appease the taste buds of diabetic patients and advanced monitoring equipment makes it possible to keep your blood sugar levels under control.
