When your pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin, or stops producing insulin at all, or your cells stop responding to the available insulin in your blood and can’t absorb glucose from your blood stream, you will have a condition called diabetes: too much glucose (sugar) in your blood stream.
One common symptom of diabetes is frequent urination which then triggers thirst and increased water/liquids consumption. Other symptoms are fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes blurred vision. Untreated, extremely elevated blood glucose levels can lead to coma and death.
Kira and Bill Van Ittersum discuss these problems of diabetes and give some practical advice about what you can do about this disease.
