About Diabetes Medicine department

Diabetes department internal medicine is a specialized medical examination for diabetes.

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease disease in which glucose in the blood is not well taken up by cells because glucose in the blood is not well taken in because the insulin hormone which functions to lower blood glucose produced by the pancreas is deficient or poorly worked and the concentration of glucose is maintained high . If sugar can not be taken into cells, energy will not be transmitted to muscles and internal organs, and the energy of the whole body will be short.

The onset of diabetes has no subjective symptoms, causing many complications if left intact.

Medication therapy is needed as diabetes progresses.
