as a disease. Hypothetically and broadly speaking, one basic reason we
should not term it as ‘disease’ is the major cause of Type 2 diabetes:

genes also play a major role in deciding whether or not you may get Type 2
diabetes, but again this can be avoided now.

IT IS A COMBO OFFER OF
Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA):
It is a potentially life-threatening complication in patients
with diabetes mellitus. It happens predominantly in those
with type 1 diabetes, but it can occur in those with type 2
diabetes under certain circumstances. DKA is a medical emergency,
and without proper treatment can lead to death. Dehydration,
vomiting, breathing problems, unstable thoughts and rare coma
are some of the symptoms.
Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic State (HHS):
This is a medical condition in which high blood sugar causes severe
dehydration, and increase in osmolarity (osmotic concentration) is
also noted and other medical conditions such as coma leading to
death. This condition is mostly related to Type 1 diabetes but can’t
be considered exclusive.
One of the serious long term complications of diabetes results in
heart ailments and most of the time makes heart condition severe
for carrying out proper treatment. Diabetes has ill potential of
almost doubling the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Diabetic Foot Ulcer is a major complication of diabetes mellitus. In
adverse condition it may lead to leg amputations too. Diabetic
Mellitus is a metabolic disorder that obstructs the normal steps of
wound healing process.

Diabetes comes free but takes a lot of money in its treatment (mind
you even the money can’t buy the treatment, it can only control).
Well, there are direct costs, indirect costs, and a lot of intangible
costs involved in diabetes. We don’t have to say much, read our e-
book on cost of diabetes
WANT TO HEAR THE SAME OLD BUT REALLY A GOOD NEWS?
It is true that diabetes increases your risk for many serious health
problems, but well, with the correct treatment and recommended
lifestyle changes, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or
delay the onset of complications.
Our broader suggestion is stop thinking of diabetes as a disease
which you could get acquired and get treated too, like you do so
with flu, common cold, or fever and so on... In diabetes, if you act
fast and act smart there are high probability that you can avoid
