Awareness on diabetes mellitus

Diabetes is a disorder caused by the presence of too much glucose in the blood. A first depiction of this “sugar disease” was described in the “Ebers Papyrus”, a papyrus sold to the German Egyptologist Georg Moritz Ebers in 1872. It was said to have been found close to a mummy in the tomb of Thebes and appears to have been written between 3000 and 1500 BC.
