When the glucose in our blood is very high, it’s a condition known under the name of diabetes.
Blood glucose is obtained through the food we consume and it is our main source of energy.
A hormone called insulin becomes produced from the pancreas. It is the one that transfers the glucose from our food in the cells. We can also use it as a source of energy.
But, sometimes, the body just can’t produce enough or any insulin. The glucose remains in our blood and can’t go to our cells.
Then, different health problems appear. Diabetes can’t be cured, but you can manage it with the help of food and remain healthy.
