Diabetes Care

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the body's ability to regulate blood sugar (glucose). It occurs when the pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin or when the body can't effectively use the insulin it produces. Diabetes can lead to various complications if not managed properly:

  •  Diabetes disrupts the normal regulation of insulin, impacting blood sugar levels

  •  Main types include Type 1, where the body doesn't produce insulin, and Type 2, where the body doesn't use insulin effectively

  •  Genetics, lifestyle, and other factors contribute to the development of diabetes

Recognising the Signs


Common signs include increased thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, and fatigue. Early detection and proper management are crucial for living well with diabetes.
