Diabetes is a condition that causes a person's blood glucose levels becoming too high. There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.
Type 2 diabetes is where the body does not produce the sufficient amount of insulin or when the body's cells do not react to insulin. Insulin is a hormone, which is produced by the pancreas and controls the amount of sugar in the blood.
When you have diabetes, the glucose in your body struggles to break down. When you digest food, it enters into your bloodstream and then insulin moves glucose out of the blood and into your cells.
It is then broken down to produce energy however; if you have diabetes, your body is unable to break down the glucose into energy. The cause of this is either there is not enough insulin to regulate the level of glucose in the blood, or the insulin produced is ineffective.
The condition is linked to being overweight and having an inactive lifestyle with no exercise. Also, if you have a family history of diabetes, you could be at an increased risk of developing the condition at some point in your life.
If diabetes is left untreated, a number of serious health conditions can develop, including damage to vital organs, such as the heart and kidneys, and nervous system. Blindness (diabetic retinopathy) can also develop, as a result of constantly high blood sugar levels.
Your doctor will be able to provide actionable steps to manage your condition, which may include making changes to your diet or lifestyle.
