If one's blood sugar is much higher as compared to normal levels, it leads to a disorder called diabetes.

The causes of diabetes are complex but mostly attributed to obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and poor eating habits. About 10% of people with diabetes have type 1, and 90% have type 2.

Type 1 diabetes is usually detected at an early age, and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes is more commonly seen in the older age groups. Although it is unclear why that happens in some people and not in others, the chronic effect of diabetes can be managed with the right treatment and discipline; the glucose level can be kept under control. Whatever the treatment, everyone with diabetes needs to be prepared to manage it in the long run without forgoing a normal life.

The common symptoms in diabetic patients are noted as 3 P's - polydipsia, polyuria, and polyphagia. In simple terms, they are increased thirst, urination, and appetite. If you know someone with diabetes, the right thing to say to them is that they have all the support they need to keep it under check, and all they need to do is exercise regularly, keep their weight under control, and eat healthy food at regular intervals.
