Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder which is characterized by chronic hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion and insulin action or both.

• Fasting plasma glucose > 126 mg/dL and/or >200 mg/dL 2 hours after 75 g oral glucose).
• 2-hour postload glucose ≥11.1 mmol/l (≥200 mg/dl).

Type I Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (lDDM)/juvenile onset diabetes mellitus:
Type 1 diabetes can develop at any age, but occurs frequently in children and adolescents. When you have type 1 diabetes, your body produces less amount of  daily insulin to maintain blood glucose levels under control, about 10 percent of people with diabetes have this type.

Symptoms of Type 1 diabetes
• Extreme hunger
• Increased thirst
• Unintentional weight loss
• Frequent urination
• Blurry vision
• Tiredness
• It may also result in mood changes.

Type II Noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM)/maturity onset diabetes mellitus: 
Type 2 diabetes commonly occurs  in adults and around 90% of all diabetes cases. In type 2 diabetes, your body does not make use of the insulin that it produces.. However, over time most people with type 2 diabetes will require oral drugs and/or insulin to keep their blood glucose levels under control.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes can include:
• Increased hunger
• Increased thirst
• Increased urination
• Blurry vision
• Tiredness
• Sores that are slow to heal

Long-term complications of diabetes develop gradually:

Cardiovascular disease
• Cardiovascular disease
• Kidney damage (nephropathy)
• Eye damage (retinopathy)
• Eye damage (retinopathy)
• Skin conditions
• Hearing impairment
• Hearing impairment

It may also cause recurring infections. This is because elevated glucose levels make it harder for the body to heal.
