What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease that happens when your blood glucose or blood sugar, is too high. Source of energy comes from the food you eat that is from blood glucose. Pancreas made a hormone (Insulin) that helps glucose from food get into to be used for energy. The problem is when the body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose will remain in your blood and doesn’t reach to your cells.
