Hate to burst your bubble but you probably have diabetes. Diabetes is a chronic disease when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body is not able to use the insulin effectively. Failure of insulin action or production or both, can lead to a raised glucose level in the blood, hyperglycemia. This prolonged, can lead to damage of body tissues and eventually organ damage.

Diabetes is a fairly common disease and its incidence is increasing year by year. Since then, World Diabetes Day has been held yearly in order to raise awareness amongst folks such as you and I about this disease.

Since 1991, World Diabetes Day has been celebrated on every 14th November, the date marking the birth date of Frederick Banting who created the insulin.

So friends, if you have the above symptoms, go get yourselves checked!
