All about Diabetes

Diabetes is an illness that results from the body’s failure to provide enough insulin to distribute glucose to the cells. Glucose is an important source of energy for the body, and diabetic people will suffer from extreme fatigue due to the lack of glucose. Other symptoms of diabetes include urination problem, blurred vision, constant hunger, physical inactivity, and weight loss or obesity, depending on the type of diabetes that occurs. Diabetes is a major concern in the US, because it affects close to 8% of the total population. Here are links to websites that contain more information about diabetes.
