Diabetes mellitus is a disease that occurs when the pancreas cannot make enough insulin or when it fails to act in the body because cells do not respond to its stimulus. Diabetes raises your blood sugar to a higher than normal level. After many years, a lot of blood sugar can cause problems in your body. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, nerves, skin, heart and blood vessels. Elsa Patricia Vázquez Rosas, an internist physician, reported that diabetes is a chronic degenerative disease and inhabits a person’s body forever. He added that this disease is multifactorial, from the lifestyle, the misuse of insulin, when the pancreas does not work and does not produce enough insulin. He said this is all about type 2 diabetes mellitus, which is more common.  He said that more than a disease, it’s a syndrome, because it’s a set of symptoms and signs. He reported that those with diabetes are more than anything like people with obesity.  He also said that the disease is sometimes silent and does not manifest until the person shows some strong feeling, be it a scare, a joy or also some surgical event.  He explained that the patient with diabetes shows that he is very thirsty, eager to realize his physiological needs, also increases his appetite and begins to lose weight.  He argued that this syndrome detonates other diseases, such as hypertension, but also said that there are acute and chronic complications, the former encompass diabetic ketoacidosis, hypoglycemia, among others.
