Diabetology

Diabetes is a common type of disease where the sugar level is increased in the body. The sugar level in our body is controlled by a hormone called insulin, which is produced by the pancreas. Diabetes can result either due to cells of the pancreas to produce insufficient insulin or the decreased response to the insulin produced. This condition should be treated, to avoid serious long-term complications like: Stroke, kidney and heat problems, foot ulcers and damage to eyes.
