About Disease

What does hemoglobin do?

Hemoglobin is a protein that is found in the red blood cells of the blood. It is what makes blood red, and helps carry oxygen all throughout the body.

What is diabetes mellitus?

The causes of diabetes mellitus can be genetic or due to poor lifestyle choices. In Type 1 diabetes, the immune cells of the body start to attack the insulin producing cells, leading to higher blood sugar. In type 2 diabetes, the body stops using insulin properly. Both of these can be managed by medication and lifestyle changes such as proper sleep, controlling sugar intake and carbohydrates, and regular exercise.

Some warning signs for diabetes include: Excessive thirst and hunger, frequent urination, Weight loss or gain, Tiredness, Irritable mood, Blurry vision, Slow-healing wounds
