Diabetes is a lifelong condition that is characterized by a raised blood glucose level. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Signs of diabetes include an increased sense of thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, weight and muscle loss, cuts or wounds that heal slowly and blurred vision. It is extremely important for diabetes to be diagnosed as early as possible - if left untreated the condition will get progressively worse.
