Were you looking for more information about Diabetes? Diabeetus is a common misspelling of diabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic condition that occurs when your blood levels of glucose are too high. There are three types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. It is important to manage your diabetes, as high blood glucose can cause serious health problems over time, including kidney failure, nerve damage, and blindness. A treatment plan for diabetes should include a healthy diet, physical activity, regular glucose tests, and medications (for some people).
