Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).
Diabetes affects more than your blood sugar; your limbs may ache, your feet may become hypersensitive and, inevitably, you’ll need more support. Foot problems can become a big risk. All people with diabetes should monitor their feet.
