Living with diabetes is not at all pleasant, but with careful management, expert advice, and treatment, people with the condition can live a full and productive life. Diabetes is a treatable disease that does not have to take over your life.
Diabetes (also known as diabetes mellitus or DM) is a group of metabolic diseases caused by the body’s inability to produce insulin, the hormone that controls the amount of glucose (or blood sugar) produced by the body. A lack of insulin causes elevated glucose levels, can lead to a number of health complications. These complications may include strokes, cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, and skin, eye, and foot damage. Diabetes is a deadly disease that affects millions of Americans each year and claims millions of lives. However, with a healthy and active lifestyle, as well as regular doctor visits, the effects can be mitigated or even prevented.
