    Akshay Kumar* and K Suresh

    Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose level, either due to inadequate insulin secretion or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to the insulin or both. It has multiple aetiology characterised by hyperglycaemia, and disturbances of carbohydrates, proteins, and fat metabolism. For many years it can be silent without any suffering and be identified only when symptoms like persistent weight loss, blurring of vision or nonhealing wound or even diabetic ketoacidosis, stroke, kidney failure, and cardiovascular disease occur. When presented with symptoms of excessive urination, increased thirst, and hunger it is easy to recognize and manage.

    We present one such Clinical case of a- 54 years old, housewife, reported of excessive urination, sudden weight loss, blurred vision, increased thirst, fatigue, and excessive sweating. She was experiencing these conditions from April 2021 onwards but was alarmed and reported to Punya hospital Bangalore in May 2021. After a thorough examination and random blood glucose check (189mg/dl), was diagnoses as Diabetic and was put on oral anti-diabetics. While the follow-up visit is due next week, she has nearly 70% relief from her symptoms.
