Diabetes Blood Sugar

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how your body processes sugar, or glucose, in your blood.

There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce any insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels.

In type 2 diabetes, the body does not use insulin effectively, leading to high blood sugar levels.

Elevated blood sugar levels, or hyperglycemia, can cause a variety of symptoms and complications.

These may include frequent urination, increased thirst, fatigue, blurred vision, and slow healing of wounds. Over time, high blood sugar levels can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, and blindness.
