Suffering from Diabetes mellitus, but don't actually feel ill? Perhaps you get on just fine with your diagnosis and only notice every now and then that your metabolism isn't in perfect rhythm? Perhaps you manage perfectly well on an everyday basis but would now like to get a little more exercise into your life, or maybe become really sporty? It's achievable, even with diabetes!
You are not alone
In Germany, about 7 million people currently live with a diagnosis of Diabetes mellitus. This is a metabolic disorder characterised by high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia). It is triggered when the body does not produce enough insulin (which regulates the body's blood sugar metabolism), or when the insulin does not have a sufficient effect.
