Diabetes is a medical condition affecting the way your body processes glucose — a type of sugar found in many foods. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas. A healthy body uses the insulin hormone to convert glucose into usable energy for bodily processes.
If you have diabetes, your body doesn’t produce enough insulin and can’t properly process glucose into energy. Glucose accumulates in your bloodstream and leads to high blood sugar. High blood sugar can severely damage the cells, organs, and tissues of your body over time.
Chronically high blood sugar levels can even prevent your cells from regenerating effectively and inhibit the healing of damaged cells. Chronic high blood sugar levels might also suppress many of the natural processes needed for a healthy, balanced body and homeostasis.
