What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a chronic health condition where the body loses the ability to make use of insulin. Insulin is one of the important hormones that help in balancing glucose levels. When this hormone is not produced or used effectively, it can raise glucose levels and damage the functionality of other organs. The only way to lessen the impact of this chronic disease is by having medications and following a healthy diet.
