Diabetes is  a metabolic disorder that causes  sugar in the  form of glucose to  accumulate in the blood rather than being used as fuel by the cells in our  body.

The pancreas produces  insulin   , A  chemical  messenger  essential  for  the entry of glucose into cells. Glucose  is  an essential   source  of fuel  for many  organs in the  body  , however, for it  to be used, it must  first enter  the cell and  this  can fail  to  happen  and can lead to  Type 2  Diabetes.

in type  2  diabetes, the pancreas  is unable  to produce  this  Insulin as  needed.

THE  COMMON  WAY TO FIND OUT IF YOU ARE DIABETIC IS  TO  CHECK YOUR  BLOOD  SUGAR LEVEL
