What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a chronic health condition that causes blood sugar levels in the body to rise above normal. Our body uses a hormone called insulin to help control our blood sugar levels, but those with diabetes either don’t have enough insulin, or their body can’t properly use insulin. Common symptoms related to diabetes can include increased urination, thirst, hunger, and unexplained weight loss.
