Diabetes is manifested by excess blood sugar due to lack of insulin. It may be genetic, physiological (overweight, hormonal), or induced by a person's lifestyle. It is a serious illness that, without proper treatment, can lead to heart disease, blindness, impotence, and even amputations.
Diabetes is a global disaster and our country is not spared: 3 million French people are now diabetics. This number is added diabetics who do not know each other, more than 700,000 French. Every day nearly 400 new patients are diagnosed and by 2020 the number of people treated in Hexagon will double.
