Diabetes is a disease or condition that occurs when your blood sugar (glucose) is too high. Over time, having high blood sugar levels can cause serious health problems, but you can prevent or delay these problems by eating healthy meals, being physically active, monitoring your blood sugar and taking the medicine your doctor prescribes. Although there is no cure, millions of people with diabetes enjoy long, full lives, and you can, too.
