Diabetes is a chronic condition which happens when the body loses its ability to produce enough insulin or to use it effectively.
Insulin is a hormone that is made in the pancreas and allows glucose from food to pass into the body’s cells, where it is converted into energy for the muscles and tissues to function.
Diabetes is a very serious condition, which causes potentially life-threatening health complications.
Many people with diabetes may have relatively normal lives. And the truth is that if we have a good treatment, we can live with it as normal. However, not all people with diabetes can pay for medical treatments. On the other hand, some people find it annoying to have to inject insulin every day.
