Diabetes & Internal Medicine

Diabetes is a common condition, in which a person's blood sugar levels become too high. In Middle East in general most people become diabetic because of their life styles.

There are two major variants: type 1 and type 2.

Type 1 is sometimes referred to as ‘insulin-dependent’ diabetes, as it is characterised by the body's inability to produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is the more common variant, characterised by what is known as insulin resistance, where the body does not effectively respond to the insulin produced. 

Type 1 generally involves daily injections of insulin, while type 2 can be managed by taking tablets maintaining a healthy lifestyle

Diabetes is a condition that affects millions people all around the world. Neuropathy (nerve damage) is a long-term complication of diabetes, and often affects the lower leg, making it difficult to detect foot problems such as ulcers. Poor circulation caused by narrow arteries can make the healing process longer, leaving wounds vulnerable to infection.
