Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Diabetes
Diabetes is a disease in which the body's ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood and urine. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood.
There are two types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when your body’s pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin. Type 2, the most common type of diabetes occurs when the pancreas either doesn’t produce enough insulin or your body’s cells ignore the insulin.
