What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a disorder characterized by excess amount of blood glucose or blood sugar. This occurs when there is decrease in the production of the hormone insulin in the body. There are two types that attribute to the diabetes: insulin deficiency and insulin resistance. In insulin deficiency the pancreas does not produce enough insulin due to malfunction of insulin producing cells. In insulin resistance the pancreas produces plenty of insulin, but the body cannot use the insulin properly thereby shooting up the blood sugar level. If untreated, high glucose levels damage the blood vessels, posing great health problems in the long run.
