Diabetes is a group of diseases that affect how your body uses blood sugar (glucose). Glucose is vital to the health because it is an important source of energy. Too much sugar in blood can lead to serious health problems. Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes are chronic diseases, while prediabetes is potentially reversible.
Diabetes symptoms vary depending on how much the blood sugar is elevated. Some of these signs of chronic diabetes are increased thirst, extreme hunger, weight loss, fatigue, irritability, blurred vision, sores and infections, such as gums or skin infections and vaginal infections.
