Diabetic Care

Diabetes is also called high blood sugar and it is one of the leading causes of heart disease and kidney disease in our country. It also leads to blindness due to bleeding in the back of the eye from blood vessels that grow because of the high blood sugar. Symptoms of diabetes include excessive thirst, excessive urination, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, and blurred vision.
