Hi guys and girls,

Diabetes is one medical complication that many of us don't really seem to give too much a damn about. Awareness about it is very essential to the youth today. A layman would know nothing more than just say "Diabetes ? Oh.. you talkin' about sugar patients ??!!". And, they just know that they should not be eating candies. Diabetes is a very complicated 'disease'. It does not show up immediately, nor does it affect your health immediately. It has its effect in the long run. It slowly eats up your immunity and finally renders your body pathetically useless. What best we can do is nothing but slow down the decaying process as much as possible and in a way that is most pain free. Diabetes mellitus, often simply diabetes, is a syndrome characterized by disordered metabolism and inappropriately high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) resulting from either low levels of the harmone insulin or from abnormal resistance to insulin's effects coupled with inadequate levels of insulin secretion to compensate. The characteristic symptoms are excessive urine production (polyuria), excessive thirst and increased fluid intake (polydipsia), and blurred vision; these symptoms are likely absent if the blood sugar is only mildly elevated.
So, it is clearly understood that Diabetes, so far, has not been found curable. All that we can do is to prevent the process from worsening only to get us to the end point too early. There are several precautions that sugar patients will have to adhere to strictly in order to lead a pain free and stress free life. So, nothing to worry. Keep your sugar low, and walk with your head held high !
