what is diabetes

Insulin is a vital hormone found in the pancreas, allowing glucose to be transferred into the cells in the body, providing energy. In people with diabetes, insulin is no longer produced or not produced in sufficient amounts by the body.

Unhealthy levels of glucose in the blood can lead to both long- and short term health complications, and people with diabetes are at a higher risk of suffering from heart and kidney disease, stroke, limb amputation caused by nerve damage, depression, anxiety and blindness.

There are three main forms of diabetes, types 1, 2 and gestational diabetes.
