Diabetes And High Blood Sugar: Learn the relationship between them and how they are cured.

Diabetes, also known as diabetes mellitus, happens when the glucose in your blood stays high. Everybody has glucose in their blood. It’s in the food we eat. It provides energy for our muscles, organs and brain to work, think and play.

When you have diabetes, the glucose needs help to move out of your blood and into the cells of your body (those found in your muscles, organs and brain). For the glucose to get into your cells it needs insulin. Insulin is made in an organ called the pancreas, which is found behind your stomach. People with diabetes either cannot make insulin or the insulin made does not work properly. Insulin is like a key. It ‘unlocks’ the doors of your cells allowing glucose to get in. Glucose gives your cells the energy they need to do their job.

High levels of glucose in your blood everyday can make you feel unwell. If not treated, over time the glucose can also cause damage to your eyes, feet, kidney, heart and brain.

There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. In type 1 diabetes, the immune system attacks the pancreas, rendering it unable to produce insulin.

In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas still makes insulin, but the body has become more resistant. This can happen for a variety of factors, like diet, obesity, or genetic predisposition. The pancreas will keep making more and more insulin, but eventually the organ can become worn out. In some cases, it stops producing insulin.Visit website for complete remedy for diabetes.
