Caption: Diabetes blood sugar test. Hands of a nurse using a lancet to prick the finger of an elderly female diabetic patient being cared for at home. The blood obtained will be measured for levels of the sugar glucose. Diabetes mellitus affects glucose sugar metabolism. Blood sugar is not oxidised due to a lack of the pancreatic hormone insulin. Treatment is based on a strict diet and insulin injections to maintain the blood-sugar balance.
