Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose, a type of sugar, for our bodies to use for energy. A hormone released by the pancreas called insulin helps glucose get into the cells of our bodies. When you have diabetes, your pancreas either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t use its own insulin well.
When high amounts of sugar stay in your blood for too long, problems can happen throughout your body. These problems are called complications of Diabetes.
Type 2 Diabetes is when you have too much sugar (also called glucose) in your blood. Normally,
our bodies manage glucose with a hormone called Insulin.
