Diabetes is a body disorder in which your body is not capable to produce enough amount of hormone insulin or in other way the insulin doesnít work properly. Insulin is a hormone which is made by the pancreas and it helps body cells to absorb sugar from food. And this Insulin is required to convert the food which we consume daily, like sugar, starches and other food in to energy which is very essential for our daily routine life.Diabetes is mainly of 2 types. In Type 1 diabetes people are totally unable to produce insulin and in Type 2 diabetes people can produce insulin but then their cells donít respond to it. In both cases the glucose canít circulate in to the cells and then it led the levels of blood glucose very high. And over the time because of these high glucose levels people faces serious problems.
