Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when your blood sugar is too high. Blood sugar comes from the food we eat and is what fuels our bodies with energy. In order for the body to use up this energy, the pancreas produces a hormone namely Insulin which helps the blood sugar get into the human cells. Sometimes, the Pancreas does not or is not able to produce enough insulin which leaves a lot of blood sugar in the blood. This state of too much blood sugar in the blood unable to reach the cells due to low or no insulin is what is referred to as Diabetes.
