Diabetes is a medical condition that happens when blood sugar, also known as blood glucose is too high.
We should know that blood glucose is the principal source of energy and blood glucose comes from the food we consume.
The pancreas produces a hormone that is known as insulin. This hormone helps transfer the glucose from food into our cells and this can be used as energy.
There are times when our body doesn’t make, enough or simply does not use insulin as it should. What happens then is that glucose stays in the blood and it is not able to reach the cells.
This with time can lead to different health problems. There is no cure for diabetes, but what we can do is manage it and try to stay healthy.
