Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a metabolic disease in which there are high levels of blood sugar circulating in the body for a prolonged period. Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination, increased thirst, increased hunger, and change in body weight. If left untreated, diabetes can cause serious long-term complications, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, chronic kidney failure, peripheral neuropathy, foot ulcers, and damage to the eyes. Diabetes is due to either the pancreas not producing enough insulin or the cells of the body not responding properly to the insulin produced, due to insulin resistance from weight gain.
