Diabetes miletus, commonly known as diabetes, is a metabolic disease that is caused due to rise in the blood sugar levels. It is fast gaining the status of a potential epidemic in India, with more than 62 million individuals currently diagnosed with the disease.

The prominent symptoms of hyperglycemia (an excess of glucose in the bloodstream) are frequent urination, thirst and increased appetite. If uncared for, chronic hyperglycemia can lead to long-term damage like dysfunction and failure of different organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, blood vessels, and also foot problems. Diabetic patients are predisposed to foot infections.
