Diabetes mellitus is a type of endocrine disorder that affects the pancreas. The pancreas is the organ in the body that regulates blood glucose (sugar) level by secreting insulin. Insulin helps the body metabolise sugar by helping cells use up available sugar for energy. People who have diabetes have a problem with the metabolism of sugar.
