  • Learn About Diabetes

    Diabetes develops when the body does not make enough insulin or cannot use the insulin it makes.

    • The foods we eat break down into sugar or glucose, which flows through the bloodstream.
    • The pancreas gland makes insulin, which moves the sugar from the bloodstream into body cells, giving them energy to do their jobs.
    • When the body stops making enough insulin, sugar builds up in the blood and cannot get into the body cells.
    • People may have very high blood sugar levels when their diabetes is first diagnosed.
