  • The Diabetes is a disease that occurs when the level of glucose in the blood, also known as blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is the main source of energy and comes from food. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps the glucose in food enter the cells to be used as energy. Sometimes the body does not produce enough or does not produce any insulin or does not use it properly and the glucose stays in the blood and does not reach the cells.
