Diabetes is a group of diseases that occur when the body is unable to regulate the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood. It is a disorder of the metabolism. Carbohydrate foods are broken down to produce glucose, causing the blood glucose level (BGL) to rise.
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, which regulates the BGL between certain limits. If your body doesn’t have enough insulin, or isn’t able to use it properly, too much glucose can build up in your bloodstream and create serious health problems.
