What is diabetes mellitus?
Diabetes Mellitus is a common disorder of the metabolism of carbohydrates. More than 50 % it is linked with a hereditary background. Diabetes Mellitus is associated with an insufficient production of insulin and excess glucose in the blood and urine. When the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, unused sugar enters the blood stream and the urine. Even if there is no sugar in the urine, it is possible to have excess sugar in the blood. Glucose accumulates in the blood and is eliminated through the urine instead of being used for producing energy.
