    • Diabetes is a disease where your blood glucose levels are above normal. Symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, excessive thirst, unexplained weight loss, extreme hunger, very dry skin, and tingling or numbness in hands or feet. There are two types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Those with Type 1 have insulin deficiency whereas those with Type 2 diabetes may not use insulin well. Treatment for diabetes requires day to day care in order to keep blood glucose levels from too low or too high.
