What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a life-threatening disease that affects an estimated 463 million people worldwide. This is a disease that comes about from having blood glucose—also referred to as blood sugar—levels that are too high. When you ingest certain foods and beverages, your pancreas should release insulin, which aids in transferring the glucose into your cells, where it’s used for energy. But people who have diabetes either don’t produce sufficient insulin or the insulin isn’t used as it should be. This means that glucose remains in the blood, which leads to having blood sugar levels that are too high.
There are two types of diabetes; Type I and Type II. Type I diabetes is when the body doesn’t make insulin. People with Type I diabetes need to inject themselves with daily insulin doses. Type II diabetes is the kind where the body either doesn’t make enough insulin or it doesn’t use it properly.
