In a healthy, normal body much of what we eat and drink becomes sugar hitting the blood stream almost immediately. Then insulin, produced in the pancreas start to send out a signal to all your muscles and fat to let the sugar in.
In diabetics though the insulin does not do a great job of getting into your body instead the sugar that is made is basically stuck going round and round in your blood.
Doctors say it is a matter of genetics and that exercise and the right diet are the best medicine.
