What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease in which a person's body produces insufficient amounts of insulin or high blood sugar levels rise (because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin or both). Dr Dilish Malik states that "As far as a language is concerned, it cannot prevent or cure the condition of metabolism. So far no evidence has been found stating that language can cure a disease."
