Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas, that acts like a key to let glucose from the food we eat pass from the bloodstream into the cells in the body to produce energy. All carbohydrate foods are broken down into glucose in the blood. Insulin helps glucose get into the cells.
415 million people live with diabetes worldwide and that is expected to rise to 642 million by 2040 642. Every 6 seconds someone dies from diabetes-related complications!
There are three main types of Diabetes;
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes
Gestational Diabetes.
