What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is the term given to the condition where the body is unable to maintain a stable blood glucose level.
Glucose (a sugar) is the main fuel of the body, and using the bloodstream it delivers the energy a body needs to function.
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas which enables the body's cells to absorb the glucose. In this way the blood sugar levels are maintained within a normal healthy range.
Insulin also promotes the absorption of glucose into the liver, where it is stored as glycogen for use in response to stress or exercise.

Causes of Diabetes
Blood sugar levels can vary for a number of reasons. The primary reason for excess glucose in the blood is a diet high in sugar and refined carbohydrates. In this way, the ability of the pancreas to produce insulin can be exceeded.
There are other reasons for high levels of blood sugar. Anything that impacts the activity of the pnacreas, such as infection or cancer, is likely to affect it's ability to produce insulin. With insufficient insulin the levels of glucose in the blood will rise.
Symptoms of Diabetes
The symptoms of diabetes are intially subtle. Increased frequency of urination, together with a resultant higher level of thirst is often the first symptom. Ultimately diabetes starts to affect the peripheral circulation, resulting in poor wound healing and skin ulcers on the toes and fingers. Eventually diabetes causes retinopathy and possibly blindness through the damage to the capillaries in the retina.
Treatment for Diabetes
Change of diet is the most important aspect of treating diabetes. Avoid foods with high levels of refined carbohydrates such as sugar, honey, jam and anything with white flour. Don't let yourself go hungry or you'll be tempted to grab the nearest available snack. The diabteic diet should nclude plenty of high complex carbohydrates and raw foods, be low in fat and high in fiber and remember to go easy on the fruit (sugar).
