Glucose and diabetes
Diabetes is a chronic disease that is characterized by high levels of glucose in the blood. Glucose is used up by our cells for energy but in excess, it damages tissue and causes poor wound healing.
- Glucose comes from food and the liver.
- Insulin helps cells absorb glucose and use it for energy.
- The liver both stores and produces glucose.
- During decreased insulin production and low glucose levels, the liver breaks down fat into glucose.
In diabetes, there is little to no production of insulin. With no insulin, the glucose remains in the bloodstream – a condition known as hyperglycemia.
