I understand your concern.
Diabetes is a medical condition, where the body's endogenous insulin production id hampered, thereby affecting the glucose metabolism. Either the insulin production stops completely (Type 1) or is inadequate (Type- 2). The prevalence is increasing every day, and it is slowly emerging to be the most common disease worldwide.
