Diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not make enough or any of the hormone insulin, or when the insulin produced doesn’t work effectively. This causes the glucose level in the blood to shoot up.

Type 2 diabetes can lead to increased risks of high blood glucose level, excessive urination, drinking and eating, weight loss, tiredness, paralysis, visual disability, heart attacks, eczema, gangrene and sometimes, itching in the groin.
