Could you have diabetes and not even know it?

What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body is unable to use it properly.
Glucose provides the body with energy and is mainly obtained from the digestion of starchy foods such as bread, rice, potatoes and from sugar and other sweet foods.

Recognise the risks
Over 1.2 million people in the Sudan are diagnosed as having diabetes.
However it is suspected that there are at least another one million people who have it but are unaware of it. Some people are at a higher risk than others. Being overweight or not doing much exercise are just two of the risks that could lead to diabetes.
