Dear Grange families,
What is Diabetes?
1 in 11 people are living with diabetes right now. Even some of the healthiest people are diabetic. Diabetes is a disease in which the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin (Type 1Diabetes), or the body cannot live off the insulin that it does create (Type 2 Diabetes). Insulin, the hormone made by the pancreas, helps the glucose in your blood to be used for energy. Thus, diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose level (or blood sugar level) is higher than it should be.
