Diabetes Management

Diabetes is a disease that happens when the blood glucose, often referred to as blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main energy source, and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a pancreatic hormone, helps the glucose from food to enter your cells for energy use. Your body sometimes does not make enough – or any – insulin, or use insulin well. Glucose will then remain in your blood, and will not reach your cells. Having too much glucose in your blood may cause health problems over time. Although there is no cure for diabetes you can take steps to manage your diabetes and stay healthy. Sometimes people call diabetes "a touch of sugar" or "borderline diabetes." These terms suggest somebody has no diabetes or a less serious case, but every diabetes case is serious.
