Diabetes is a disease that develops when the body does not make enough insulin, or cannot use the insulin it makes. A gland in the body, called the pancreas, makes insulin. The food we eat breaks down into glucose and is transported by the bloodstream. Insulin moves the glucose from the bloodstream into body cells. Glucose (also called blood sugar) provides the cells with the energy to do their jobs.
