Diabetes mellitus refers to metabolic disorders that lead to increased blood sugar levels.

There are several different types of diabetes: Diabetes mellitus type 1, type 2 and other forms of diabetes, e.g. after inflammation of the pancreas and diabetes during pregnancy. Studies on the frequency of diabetes in Germany show an increase in incidence rates.

Type 1 diabetes means that your body does not produce enough insulin to process the sugar in your blood.

Type 2 diabetes means that your body does not use the insulin produced effectively. If diabetes is not adequately controlled, the blood sugar level increases. If the blood sugar is too high, this can lead to consequential damage, which restricts the ability of your kidneys to filter out waste and fluids. Although the treatment of diabetes has been improved, many people with diabetes experience kidney damage after 20-30 years.

Diabetes mellitus can lead to complications, such as kidney diseases with kidney function disorders, heart and vascular diseases, nerve diseases or eye diseases. These complications can be minimised or avoided through early and constant optimum metabolic regulation.
