Diabetes truly is a national health epidemic as XX million people are affected by diabetes currently, and many more are pre-diabetic but are unaware of their condition. Generally, there is a misconception that diabetes is a blood sugar problem. But actually, diabetes is a cellular problem where our cells are unable to receive the glucose (sugar) that is being delivered through the blood stream.
Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas, and insulin acts as the "key" to these glucose receptors. When produced at sufficient levels, insulin "unlocks" the cell which allows glucose to be delivered into the cell. If these receptors remain locked, then glucose builds up in the blood stream causing nerve and blood vessel damage.
