Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/14/2018 -- Global Diabetes Devices Market: Overview

Diabetes mellitus, often referred as diabetes, is a chronic condition that results when there are elevated levels of glucose in the blood. High blood glucose levels occur when our body is unable to produce any or enough of the hormone insulin or use it effectively. Insulin is produced in the pancreas and is an essential hormone for transporting glucose from our blood stream into the body cells where it gets converted into energy. The lack of insulin or the inability of the cells to respond to insulin leads to high levels of blood glucose, or hyperglycemia, which causes diabetes. If diabetes is undiagnosed and treatment for it is not taken correctly, it leads to damage of other body organs and development of life-threatening health complications such as neuropathy, cardiovascular disease, nephropathy and eye disease, leading to retinopathy and blindness. Presently 415 million people are living with diabetes.
