...Diabetes Diabetes is a group of diseases that affect the way that one’s body uses blood glucose, which is commonly referred to as blood sugar. To have diabetes, regardless of what type, means that the body simply has too much glucose within the blood. If there is an increased amount of glucose in the blood, the individual risks developing further health complications. The reason that I am researching this topic is because of how common diabetes has become, especially in our significantly obese society. Furthermore, as a result of the increased numbers of people with obesity, the amount of children being diagnosed with diabetes is steadily rising. Diabetes is a complex disease, primarily due... ...

Therefore, without insulin, the body has no access to energy leading to accumulation of sugar.

Certainly, many people have high blood sugar levels but not above the normal range of diabetes (Lowe 27).

Insulin is a pancreatic hormone which is produced by the islet cells and is secreted to move the glucose in the blood stream to the muscle and fat tissues for later metabolism into energy. However, when the level of insulin decreases due to the lesser production by the islet cells or the resistance from muscle and fat cells in response to the insulin hormone, the sugar in the blood stream remains unused, which is reflected by the rise in the blood sugar level.
