Diabetes

    Overview

    Diabetes can develop in children and adults, and comes in different forms. It is a chronic condition in which the body is unable to normally regulate levels of sugar in the blood, whether through under-production of insulin in the pancreas, or a failure to properly metabolize glucose in the bloodstream. In addition to medical treatment, patients are urged to maintain healthier blood pressure and body weight levels, to mitigate the increased risk for other cardiovascular diseases.
