Diabetes is commonly referred as Diabetes mellitus (DM). Diabetes is a disease that affects your body’s ability to produce or use insulin by pancreas. Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas. Our body transforms the food we eat into energy, which is usually called as glucose or sugar, insulin helps cells to use this glucose/sugar for energy. Without insulin cells cannot use glucose. Diabetes is a situation where pancreas fails to produce enough insulin or cells of the body are unable to use insulin properly. When cells fail to use the insulin excessive amount of glucose enters into body, high sugar level in body is called hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). As the body is not responding to the insulin properly the cells are not getting it for their essential energy and growth requirements which lead to weakness, stress, nerve damage. Glycemic control is the word used for the typical levels of sugar (glucose) in a person with diabetes.
The symptoms of diabetes include

Diabetes symptoms differ from one other depending on their sugar levels. In some cases very mild symptoms or no symptoms are seen, in such situation people with diabetes are unaware of the condition and undiagnosed.
