Diabetes is manifested with excess blood sugar due to insulin deficiency. It may be genetic, normal (overweight, hormonal), or induced by the individual's lifestyle. It is a serious illness that, without proper treatment, can lead to heart disease, blindness, impotence and even amputation.
Diabetes is a global scourge and our country is not lost: 3 million French people are now diabetic. In this figure are added diabetics who do not know each other, more than 700,000 French. Each day, approximately 400 new patients are diagnosed and by 2020 the number of people to be treated will double in Hexagon.
