Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood sugar (glucose) level is too high. Glucose is very important as it provides energy to the body. Insulin helps glucose to reach and provide energy to every cell of the body. If body becomes unable to make enough insulin, then the blood glucose remains in the blood and doesn’t provide energy to the cells of the body. This condition is called as Diabetes.
