Diabetes is a small grouping of diseases characterized by high blood.

sugar levels that derive from defects in the body’s ability to create or use insulin.

It is very important to take and keep control of blood sugar levels within the body because when a lot of sugar stays in the blood,it can damage the blood vessels and nerves.

Much of the food that is eaten daily is turned into sugar in the blood to be used by the body for energy.

Insulin is really a hormone produced within the body by the pancreas that helps the sugar in the blood get into the cells of the body.

When the body doesn’t make enough insulin, or if the insulin it does make doesn’t work properly, blood sugar levels cannot get into the body’s cells and instead stays in the blood, raising the blood sugar levels level.

Records have now been documenting the diabetes disease for tens and thousands of years.

The very first known recorded mention of disease was as early as 1552 BC by way of a physician in Egypt.
