What is diabetes?
Diabetes occurs due to a disorder of metabolism. People of any age get diabetes. The body does not produce sufficient insulin or use it properly. So it leads to high glucose in the blood.
What we eat, is broken down into glucose energy (a form of sugar in the blood). This blood glucose is very important for the proper function of the body. This glucose moves from the blood to body cells for growth and energy. But in this insulin plays an important role for glucose to get into cells.
Insulin is a hormone which is produced by the pancreas. The important function of insulin hormone is to control blood glucose level.
When we eat, the pancreas produces enough insulin hormone which gives signals to body cells to absorb glucose from the blood and use as a energy. This way insulin hormone prevents hyperglycemia. Those people having diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin so blood glucose (sugar) does not get into the body cell. It passes out of the body in the urine. Body cells find unable to grow and produce energy which is very important for healthy living.
