Living with Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly. We get glucose from starchy foods in our diet such as pasta, bread and cakes.

The hormone insulin is responsible for maintaining the glucose level in the blood. Insulin moves glucose from the blood and stores it in the body's cells where it can be drawn upon for energy. If an individual has diabetes this is because either the body is not making enough insulin or the use of insulin within the body is poor.
