What is Diabetes


Diabetes is a disease in which glucose, or sugar levels, are above normal in the blood. Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose that our bodies use for energy. The pancreas, an organ that lies near the stomach, makes a hormone called insulin that helps glucose get into the cells of our bodies. When you have diabetes, your body doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t use its own insulin as well as it should. This causes glucose to build up in your blood. There are several types of diabetes. In type 1 diabetes the body does not make insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the body does not use insulin well and may not make enough insulin. This is the most common form of diabetes. Gestational diabetes happens when a woman’s body does not use insulin well while she is pregnant. It raises her risk for type 2 diabetes and raises her child’s risk of getting diabetes. Diabetes is serious. Over time, high blood glucose levels may cause many health problems including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, and foot sores and amputations.
