Diabetes

Your body’s cells gets its energy from converting glucose, and you get glucose from your daily food intake. To convert glucose into energy, your body uses the insulin that your pancreas produces. If your pancreas does not produce insulin, glucose does not get converted into energy and stays in the blood stream instead, resulting in type 1 diabetes. If your pancreas creates some insulin but your body fails to use it well, you may have type 2 diabetes. Both types of diabetes can cause nerve damage, eye issues, and kidney disease. The good news is that a healthy diet and the right treatment plan can help manage—even reverse, in some cases—diabetes symptoms in the long run. Read this blog section to learn more about diabetes.
