Diabetes is a medical condition that is caused through a lack of insulin, or non action from insulin in the body.
In the instance of non action from insulin in the body, this is known as Diabetes Type 1.
In the case of reduced insulin or insulin resistance in the body, this is known as Diabetes Type 2.
Sometimes people can suffer from Diabetes without actually displaying any symptoms, and therefore need to be formally examined and diagnosed by their doctor.
If you have the above symptoms then contact your doctor as early as you can, so that a formal assessment can be carried out.
Once you have been officially diagnosed by your doctor as having Diabetes you will be able to manage your symptoms with the right treatment and regular health checks.
Diabetes treatment aims to keep blood glucose levels as near normal as possible.
Together with control of cholesterol and blood pressure, this will help prevent the long term complications which can affect the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and circulation.
