Diabetes

DiabetesDiabetes is a disease that causes high levels of sugar in the bloodstream over a prolonged period of time. The pancreas is the organ responsible for regulating blood sugar. The organ produces Insulin and glucagon. When the pancreas becomes compromised by an immune system attack, the insulin producing islet cells slowly die causing diabetes. There is no cure for the disease at this time, only treatments but there are promising studies going on right now that can possibly cure the condition.

I’ll be posting about dangerous conditions like hypoglycemia as well as exciting new research studies, so keep an eye out!
