What Exactly is Diabetes

For those of you who don’t know exactly what diabetes is or how it begins, Diabetes is a disease in which the level of sugar in the blood is abnormally high. The reason for the high blood glucose (sugar) levels is that the body is not able to properly control the amount of sugar in the blood. Persons diagnosed with diabetes cannot produce or effectively use insulin to regulate their glucose levels.

Diabetes begins in the pancreas, but can lead to kidney failure, nerve damage in the feet, eyes, and heart, and cause great disabilities. But proper  treatment can lead to a healthier lifestyle and an higher quality of life. If you or a loved one is affected by diabetes, please feel free to contribute to this blog. Share your thoughts, ideas, feelings, and especially experiences. Together, we can conquer diabetes.
