Description

Introduction: Diabetes is a disease with far reaching implications not just for those who suffer from the disease but also for the societies in which they live. Diabetes is an endocrine (glandular) disease characterized by insufficient insulin production or the inability of body tissues to use insulin properly. When insulin in the blood stream can’t get inside our cells blood sugar levels go up (hyperglycemia). High blood sugar levels damage body tissues, especially blood vessels, and this leads to eye disease, kidney disease, nerve disease and heart disease. Also, diabetes-related eye disease predicts these other diseases.
