    Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease marked by high level of blood glucose. There are few types of diabetes:

    Type 1 : An autoimmune disorder where the body immune system attacks own insulin production cell, β or beta cell. It was formerly known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus where the body needs insulin injection to metabolise the glucose. This form of diabetes usually occurs in children or adolescence.

    Type 2 : Previously known as non insulin-independent diabetes mellitus. The body is unable to use own insulin properly or the body produces insufficient insulin to take up glucose as the energy supply. In some cases, it can be controlled by practicing healthy lifestyle and exercise, without any medication.

    Gestational diabetes : It occurs in some women during pregnancy. After pregnancy, these women have higher risk in developing type 2 diabetes in the future.

    Diabetes mellitus can lead to other chronic complications such as cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, amputation, retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy. Virtually, the demand for healthcare facilities and hospitalization increases accordingly.
