Diabetes is a disease that comes about when your blood glucose is too high. Blood
glucose comes from the foods that you eat, and is a main channel for energy.
A hormone called Insulin helps transport glucose from food get into your
cells to be used as energy. If your body does not make enough insulin,
glucose will stay in your blood and will not reach your cells to be used
for energy. Too much glucose in your blood can lead to health problems
and can lead to diabetes.
