AT-HOME DIABETIC CARE SERVICES
Diabetes is is a chronic and incurable condition in which your body has trouble using glucose, a simple form of sugar, for energy. As a result, the sugar level in your blood becomes too high. Left untreated, it can result in major health complications. The exact cause of diabetes is unknown, although both genetic factors and environmental factors like obesity and lack of exercise are believed to play roles.
