Diabetes mellitus, or simply, Diabetes, is a deviation from the natural health condition of the body, and is characterized by less than optimum utilization of glucose by the body due to partial or complete lack of insulin produced by the pancreas.

Diabetes is generally, but not necessarily, a birth defect where the body just doesn’t produce enough insulin to keep blood sugar at normal levels.
