Diabetes & Blood-sugar Management
Diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition wherein blood sugar levels in the body remain high as the body fails to regulate it. Insulin is the hormone that plays a vital role in this disease. It is produced by the pancreas and it controls the blood sugar. Blood sugar or glucose acts as a fuel for various cellular activities. Insulin moves glucose from blood to muscles, fat and liver cells where it is stored or used as fuel. In diabetes either little insulin or insulin resistance hampers this transformation of glucose and in turn tends to affect the body negatively.
