Understand Diabetes :
Diabetes mellitus is a lifetime condition, caused by shortage or lack of insulin. It is characterized by excessive glucose in blood and urine. Insulin is a hormone which is made by pancreas. It helps to utilize glucose for the production of energy by the body. Insulin also helps to prevent the rise of blood sugar and maintain the levels in the normal limit.
