Let's Talk Diabetes
Let's Talk Diabetes
DIABETES MELLITUS IS A LIFELONG CONDITION CAUSED BY A LACK, OR INSUFFICIENCY OF INSULIN. Insulin is a hormone — a substance of vital importance that is made by your pancreas. Insulin acts like a key to open the doors into your cells, letting sugar (glucose) in. In diabetes, the pancreas makes too little insulin to enable all the sugar in your blood to get into your muscle and other cells to produce energy. If sugar can’t get into the cells to be used, it builds up in the bloodstream. Therefore, diabetes is characterised by high blood sugar levels. Excess sugar is also excreted in the urine.
