Patient Care

Diabetes is a disorder in which your body doesn't properly produce or use insulin to convert glucose (sugars), carbohydrates and other foods into energy. Diabetes is marked by high levels of sugar in the blood because the body does not respond to insulin, a hormone that breaks down sugars into energy the body can use.
