Diabetes is a medical condition where the volume of glucose in your blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly.
The condition can lead to very serious health issues and after effects. This is because there is no production of insulin in the pancreas or there is not enough insulin being produced, this needs to work properly to help glucose enter your body’s cells – or the insulin that is made does not work sufficiently (known as insulin resistance). The glucose is needed for fuel which is used to produce energy so we can work and play and most importantly lead a healthy life. In other words is very vital to our lives.
