Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, which is how our bodies digest food for growth and energy. Most of the food we eat is broken down into glucose, the form of sugar in the blood. Glucose is the main source of fuel for cells in the body. When someone has diabetes, the body does not produce or use insulin properly, which is a hormone needed to convert sugar, starches, and other food into energy needed for life. 

The CDC estimates that by 2050, 1-in-3 adults could have the disease and that around 25% of adults over the age of 65 will be affected. Keep yourself and your loved ones protected and informed about prevention and techniques to control diabetes.
