Diabetes: the Silent Killer Disease


Diabetes is not widely regarded as a killer in the general population, but it is in the medical community. Diabetes is one of the top 10 killers, mainly from diabetic heart disease. And undiagnosised diabetes is one of the most common undiagnosed diseases, because of the subtle and vague problems that are typical symptoms of diabetes. Diabetes doesn't kill you suddenly, but high blood sugars gradually damage all the blood vessels throughout the body, sometimes for years before you get diagnosed. Diabetes is also associated with the other silent killers of hypertension and high cholesterol.
