The majority of the food you eat is converted into sugar (also known as glucose) and released into your bloodstream. When your blood sugar rises, your pancreas sends a signal to release insulin. Insulin functions as a key to allow blood sugar into your body’s cells for use as energy.
If you have diabetes, your body either does not produce enough insulin or does not use the insulin produced as efficiently as it should. Too much blood sugar remains in your bloodstream when there is insufficient insulin or when cells stop responding to insulin. This can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease, vision loss, and kidney disease over time.
Diabetes does not yet have a cure, but losing weight, eating healthy foods, and staying active can all help. Taking medication as needed, receiving diabetes self-management education and support, and attending health-care appointments can all help to lessen the impact of diabetes on your life.
