What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic medical condition characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose (sugar), either due to the body’s inability to produce enough insulin (a hormone that regulates blood sugar) or the ineffective use of insulin by the body. There are different types of diabetes, including Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Diabetes can lead to various complications if not effectively managed, and it requires ongoing medical attention, lifestyle modifications, and often medication or insulin therapy. Our team of expert physicians are prepared to help you through each step of your diabetes journey.
