What is Diabetes?


Diabetes is a condition which happens with all the creation and supply of insulin in the body as an effect of issues. We use glucose as a source of energy to give power for our muscles as well as other tissues. Glucose in our blood transports to muscles and tissues. In order for our muscles and other tissues to absorb glucose from our blood, we need a hormone called insulin. Without insulin, our bodies cannot get the required energy.

Insulin is created in a gland behind the stomach known as the pancreas. It’s released by cells called beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin allows the entry of glucose from your blood into the cells and therefore becomes necessary for the body in order to use glucose for energy.

When someone has diabetes, either his/her pancreas doesn’t produce the insulin he or she wants, or its natural insulin is used by the body cannot efficiently. Consequently, in diabetes, when the glucose builds up in the blood rather than going into cells, it might cause following issues: the cells could be starved for energy and over time, high glucose levels in the blood may result in harm to eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart.
