Whenever there’s something wrong in our body, it sends signals we need to recognize. Such is the case for diabetes – in case of blood sugar levels for a prolonged period, you might experience thirst and hunger, blurry vision, slow healing of wounds and a frequent urge to urinate.

 

Glucose is a type of sugar present in our blood which our cells use for energy. However, the levels of this sugar must be kept in balance in order to avoid potential problems. To do this, the pancreas produces insulin, a hormone which controls the glucose production and expenditure. However, due to a combination of factors, the immune system might start attacking the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, resulting in the development of diabetes, a serious disease which can have fatal consequences.
