Diabetes is not a disease, it’s a physical condition of high blood sugar level above the normal level due to the inactivity of the pancreas in producing less or no insulin.
Diabetes can be effectively managed when caught early. However, when left untreated, it can lead to potential complications that include heart disease, stroke, kidney damage and nerve damage. Normally after you eat or drink your body will break down sugars from your food and use them for energy in your cells. To accomplish this, your pancreas needs to produce a hormone called insulin. Insulin is what facilitates the process of pulling sugar from the blood and putting it in the cells for use or energy.
How it will affect our body
If you have diabetes, your pancreas either produces too little insulin or none at all. The insulin cannot be used effectively. This allows blood glucose levels to rise while the rest of your cells are deprived of much-needed energy. This can lead to a wide variety of problems affecting nearly every major body system.
If your pancreas produces little or no insulin or cannot use it alternate hormones are used to turn fat into energy. This can create a high level of toxic chemicals, including acids and ketone bodies leads to diabetic ketoacidosis also causes visual disturbances, increased risk of stroke, risk of heart disease, pancreas malfunction, nerve damage, high blood pressure, loss of consciousness etc. Diabetes can be effectively managed when caught early. However left untreated, it can lead to potential complications like heart disease, stroke, kidney damage and nerve damage.
