Diabetes mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a condition that impairs the body’s ability to process blood glucose, otherwise known as blood sugar. All the cells in the human body require glucose for energy and Insulin hormone for its utilization. This hormone insulin moves sugar from the blood into your cells to be stored or used for energy. With diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t effectively use the insulin it does make.
