What is Diabetes Mellitus?

Diabetes Mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a disorder of carbohydrate metabolism characterized by high blood sugar level (hyperglycaemia) and high level of sugar in urine (glycosuria). It is accompanied in many cases by secondary alterations of fat and protein metabolism, resulting in an array of physical disorders.

Diabetes therefore is a metabolic disease. It can be kept well under control and reasonably manged with proper care through it cannot be cured once it occurs.
