Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which blood sugar levels are too high.  With time, too much sugar in the blood can cause serious problems leading to damage of the nerves, kidneys, eyes, and arterial supply to essential organs causing an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

Insulin is a hormone in blood sugar control. 

Two common types of diabetes are recognised; Type I and Type II.  Type II is the commonest form of diabetes. The body fails to make sufficient Insulin or the body does not respond correctly to the Insulin and so blood sugar is not controlled. In Type I (or juvenile onset diabetes) Insulin is not made. 

Controlling diabetes is important to prevent serious problems.

Treatment may be with tablets, or with Insulin or both. 

Regular blood tests, blood pressure tests, eye examination and chiropody are essential for the optimal management of patients with diabetes.
