    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Diabetes And Its Complications. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

          Use Pixabay - they are free, legal, and very good quality smile

      Your article is very informative. You have worked well. Just follow theraggededge's AND Jeremy Gil's advice, and your article could be in HealDove.

    Suggestions:

    1) Not too many, but there are a few grammar/spelling errors, like the separation needed for the words "upto".
    2) Your first image, which will be the face of your Hub, seems a bit blurry, and may be more so when stretched (last I heard, half-width capsules are soon disappearing). Captioning images can help with traffic too.
    3) Some may find it odd to have a flower as the face of a Hub about diabetes. I understand diabetes is a hard thing to visually express in an appealing picture, but it may still create an incongruence with some readers.
    4) Remove the extra white space in-between several capsules.
    5) You write some words in all caps near the end; I've never been a fan of this format, which mimics frantic screaming. I'd suggest bolding instead for emphasis.

    Hope this helps!

    Very good article. Women sometimes have pain between the shoulder blades when having a heart-attack. You might want to include high blood sugar symptoms also.

        I forgot to mention, that sometimes people have a slight fruit smell when their sugar level is high.

    Hi there,

    Photos need to be full-width, of good quality (not pixelated) and legal-to-use. It's also a good idea to add the source, as PeachPurple suggests. The rose photo is not relevant to the topic and may confuse some people.

    Remove the capitalisation on the links to your other hubs.

    It's a good article and written in a nice, easy-to-understand tone smile

      Honest question: do people read others' suggestions before posting theirs? Often I see repeats of mine, though I don't really mind.

        No, not if it's a longer thread smile I spend my time reading the hub, not other people's comments on it. I read PeachPurple's comment because it was in my eye-line.

        I also added a useful link and a comment on the OP's style.

        Does it matter?

      Which link ?

        To your article, and yes, it is.

    Perhaps consider adding a section on how others can identify when someone is experiencing their sugar levels being low or high.  My wife has had diabetes for the last 25 years and I can recall how difficult I used to find it to know what to do when she was having a hypo.  When having a hypo she was incapable of responding to its effects herself and was totally reliant on others spotting it and reacting on her behalf.

    Very nice article, articulated with great insight.

    There are some small errors like "Your blood sugar level may drop if your oral medication for lowering the blood sugar level are too strong, if you take too much insulin, "

    it should be "Your blood sugar level may drop if your oral medication for lowering the blood sugar level is too strong if you take too much insulin,"

    As stated by 'theraggededge' you can rework on pictures.

    Read it twice or thrice and you will surely fix these errors. Good Luck.
