TIPS FOR HEALTHY EYES
In this age of modern technology, one finds it impossible to work without their devices. These devices such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets and television have become an integral part of our lives. They are our basic source of communication and interaction with the outer world. But while communicating with the world, we tend to forget about taking care of our most important body organ; the eyes. The eyes help us to connect with all the devices yet we fail to take good care of them.
Diabetes or diabetes mellitus is a disease which impairs the body’s ability to produce or use the hormone insulin. When the body transforms the food consumed into energy (also called sugar or glucose), insulin is produced to help transport this energy to the cells.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination); they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).
