Diabetes is an ailment where body can't produce enough insulin to meet their body's requirements and their cells cannot properly respond to insulin. Insulin is vital since it moves simple sugar, i.e., glucose from the blood to the body's cells. It also has a lot of other effects on metabolism.
Food consumed by people help provides glucose to the body that is directly used by the cells as a source of energy. If insulin doesn't work properly or isn't available; then glucose will remain in the blood to move glucose in the cells from the blood. High blood glucose levels are highly toxic in nature, and cells that don't get enough quantity of glucose are lacking the fuel they need to function properly.
There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. People diagnosed with diabetes, more than 90% of them have type 2.
