Diabetes is a disease in which blood sugar levels are high because it is caused by the insulin hormone receptor in cells that is no longer sensitive to the hormone insulin. As a result, sugar in the blood can not be digested properly, resulting in symptoms of rapid thirst, frequent urination, and fast hunger.
People with diabetes should exercise routine control with an internist at least twice a year so that the doctor can evaluate treatments that are already running. In addition, the doctor will assess whether there are complications due to diabetes that might occur. If there are complications, the doctor will perform another examination and may change the previous therapeutic dose.
