Diabetes mellitus is a condition in which the pancreas no longer produces enough insulin or when cells stop responding to the insulin that is produced, so that glucose in the blood cannot be absorbed into the cells of the body. Symptoms include frequent urination, lethargy, excessive thirst, and hunger. The treatment includes changes in diet, oral medications, and in some cases, daily injections of insulin. In type two, adult onset diabetes, a person may be able to regulate insulin production by diet and exercise and by taking insulin moderating nutrients such as chromium, vanadium, boron, gemnema sylvestre, and cinnamon.
