Diabetes is a health condition that occurs when your blood glucose (also known as your blood sugar) is too high. 

Health complications from diabetes include heart disease, damage to your nerves, kidneys, eyes and feet, and skin conditions.

Symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, increased thirst, extreme hunger and fatigue, blurry vision, cuts and bruises that are slow to heal, and tingling, pain, or numbness in your hands or feet.
