Diabetes is a disease that affects how your body processes food. Your body needs insulin to help turn food into energy. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t use the insulin it makes as well as it should. This leads to high blood sugar levels in your bloodstream which can turn into problems like heart disease, stroke, vision loss, or kidney disease. Education is a key aspect of care for anyone with diabetes or those at risk for diabetes.
