About Diabetes

About Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that causes high blood glucose (sugar) levels in the blood. Our bodies produce a hormone that provides energy in our blood. That hormone is called insulin. People develop diabetes when:

  • The body doesn't make insulin
  • The body doesn't make enough insulin (insulin deficiency)
  • The body doesn't use the insulin properly (insulin resistance)
Diabetes cannot be cured but it can be controlled. Through proper eating, exercise and medication you can live a longer, healthier life. About 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, and many people are unaware they have diabetes.

Diabetes & Your Health

Diabetes can lead to serious problems such as blindness, nerve damage, foot damage, kidney failure, loss of limbs and increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Eventually, diabetes complications can be disabling or even life threatening. The good news – You can greatly reduce the risk of complications by controlling your blood glucose levels.
