Diabetes mellitus, or commonly known simply as diabetes, is a chronic condition associated with high levels of blood sugar glucose in the body. This is due to the cells’ resistance to insulin, or lack thereof in the body. If left unmanaged, it could lead to variety of serious complications such as kidney failure, neuropathy or even stroke.
As the signs of stroke manifest, do not hesitate to let the patient be treated in the hospital. Likewise, diabetes and stroke can be avoided through healthy lifestyle choices.
