Diabetes occurs when your body does not properly process food as energy.
When you have diabetes, your body either doesn’t respond to insulin or doesn’t produce any insulin at all. Insulin is a critical hormone that gets glucose (sugar that is used as energy) to the cells in your body. This causes sugars to build up in your blood, which puts you at risk of dangerous complications.
