Course Description

Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose. It is a long-term disorder that causes high blood sugar levels. Diabetes occurs either because insulin production is scanty in the pancreas because the body's cells do not react properly to insulin or both. It develops when glucose can’t enter the body’s cell to be used as fuel and it occurs due to a lack of insulin to unlock the cell or there is no insulin or insulin is there but it’s not functioning properly.

Symptoms of diabetes are often urination, extreme fatigue, unclear vision, the slow healing process, obesity, feeling very thirsty and hungry, and weight loss in type 1diabetes

Diabetes is a lifetime disorder that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. Diabetes has many complications associated with it. It increases the risk of many serious health problems but with the correct treatment and recommended lifestyle changes, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or delay the onset of complications
