Overview

Approximately 18 million people in the United States have Diabetes. African-Americans, Latino-Americans, Native Americans, and Asian-Americans have a higher incidence of type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes occurs when the body does not make enough insulin or when the insulin you do make does not work as well as it should. Under normal circumstances, the food you eat is converted into glucose (a kind of sugar) and then transported to your bloodstream. Insulin, which is produced by your pancreas, helps to move glucose from your bloodstream into your cells.

Your cells then utilize glucose as an energy source necessary for daily living. In patients with diabetes, the insulin does not effectively transport glucose into the cells. Therefore, it remains in the bloodstream and causes your blood sugar levels to escalate. If left untreated, such high blood glucose levels can result in complications that affect your vision, heart, kidneys and circulation.
