If you've been diagnosed with diabetes, it means that your blood sugar levels are higher than normal. Although you may be feeling relatively fine, it is important to take your condition seriously.

Basic Information About Diabetes

When we eat, food is broken down into glucose (sugar) and transported throughout the body by the bloodstream. A hormone called insulin moves glucose from the bloodstream into cells within the body. If you have diabetes, your pancreas may have stopped making insulin, or your body may be unable to use the insulin it makes, resulting in glucose buildup.

Learn about the different types of diabetes, risk factors, symptoms, and the health complications the disease can cause.
