Diabetes Awareness Month

Diabetes is a disease that affects the body's ability to produce and respond to insulin, a hormone that allows blood glucose (blood sugar) to enter the cells of the body and be used for energy. Diabetes Mellitus is a condition characterized by an excess of glucose (sugar) in the blood. This happens because the body is not producing enough insulin, the hormone it needs to break down sugar.

The sugar is present, but the body cannot use it. The most effective way for the to get rid of unwanted sugar is by producing urine, a phenomena common among diabetics.
