Eat to beat the disease -a guide providing you with know-how together with show-how. Diabetes mellitus (the full medical name) is a health condition characterised by high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood, which the body cannot use properly and eventually excretes in the urine, together with a lot of water. It is caused either by the pancreas not producing the hormone insulin - or not enough of it - or by the body cells' inability to react to insulin.
