Diabetes is a disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar levels in the body. It is a metabolic disorder that leads to various symptoms such as frequent urination, thirst and increased hunger. It is either caused by reduced sensitivity of the body to insulin or reduced the production of insulin by the pancreas.
