Living with diabetes
Diabetes is a serious and life-long condition that affects the body's response to sugar, or glucose.
Urine albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR)
Urine albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR) is used to identify kidney disease that can occur as a complication of diabetes. If kidney disease is diagnosed early enough in people with diabetes, treatment will be more effective.
Feeling thirsty all the time and for no good reason isn't normal and should be investigated by your GP. Thirst is normally just the brain's way of warning that you're dehydrated because you're not drinking enough fluid.
Metabolic syndrome
Metabolic syndrome is the medical term for a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. It puts you at greater risk of heart disease, stroke and other conditions affecting blood vessels.
Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar)
Hypoglycaemia, or a "hypo", is an abnormally low level of glucose in your blood (less than four millimoles per litre). When your glucose (sugar) level is too low, your body doesn't have enough energy to carry out its activities.
Hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar)
Hyperglycaemia (a high blood sugar level) occurs when the body can't remove glucose from the blood and turn it into energy. It usually only happens in people with diabetes.
Diabetes and your unborn baby
Diabetes is a condition in which the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood is too high. Glucose comes from the digestion of starchy foods, such as bread and rice. Insulin, a hormone produced by your pancreas, helps your body to use glucose for energy.
