Diabetes mellitus is a disease characterised by a chronic abnormal blood glucose level caused by the failure of the pancreatic insulin secretion or tissues’ resistance to insulin action (i.e. glucose absorption). Potential long-term complications of diabetes include retinopathy, myocardial infarction, stroke, renal failure, and amputation.
