Endocrinology and Diabetes
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disease caused by the lack of insulin in the body or the improper action of this hormone. The disease is accompanied by an increased level of glucose in the blood, the so-called hyperglycemia. Currently, among patients with diabetes, the first type of diabetes is diagnosed most often, which affects children and young people, and the second type of diabetes, is more often diagnosed among older people.
