What Is The Difference Between Gastrologists and Gastroenterologists?

Gastroenterologists are the professionals who treat our gastrointestinal tract and liver. They have additional 5-6 years of training after medical school.

Whereas the word gastrology was used for the same purpose as gastroenterologists in the early 1900s. But as time passed, the technology and study improved and with all the special addition to this education, gastrology became gastroenterology.

What Is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition which affects our whole body. It requires daily care. But if the disease gets more serious, diabetes can have a significant impact on the quality of our life. It can also reduce our life span.
There is currently no cure for diabetes. Diabetes means we have too much glucose in our blood.
