Diabetes mellitus, also known simply as diabetes, is a condition in which the body either doesn't make enough insulin (Type 1 Diabetes) or can't use its own insulin as well as it should (Type 2 Diabetes). This can cause problems in the way the body manages its blood sugar levels, increasing the risk of problems if levels fall too high or too low. Since persistently high sugar levels can cause heart, kidney, eye, nerve and blood vessel damage, most people with diabetes undergo treatment and regular blood sugar monitoring to keep their sugar levels under control.
