What is Diabetes?

 

Diabetes is a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. Insulin is needed to move sugar from our blood to our cells. People with diabetes either do not produce insulin or their bodies cannot effectively use insulin. Diabetes can lead to serious complications and premature death, but people with diabetes can take steps to control the disease and lower the risk of complications.
