Diabetes is a chronic, debilitating and costly disease associated with major complications that pose severe risks for families, countries and the entire world.
The condition is characterised by the inability of the body to control the amount of sugar present in the blood within a normal range.
If diabetes remains untreated, it could result in unwanted complications (i.e. loss of eyesight, kidney failure, loss of fingers and toes, increased infections etc.) In other words, uncontrolled diabetes equals no quality of life.
