Diabetes mellitus is a condition that causes the pancreas to produce little or no insulin.
Diabetes mellitus is the most common form of diabetes that can develop due to poor dietary habits and lifestyles. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that anyone over 45 or with a body mass index higher than 25 with high-risk factors (such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, sedentary lifestyle, history of polycystic ovary syndrome) should get screened for diabetes. Laboratory testing for diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2) may include an A1C test, a random or fasting blood sugar test, and an oral glucose tolerance test. If Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes is present, your doctor will create a plan of care that may include lifestyle modifications and medications.
