What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition that affects how the body uses glucose, a sugar we use as a source of energy. Once glucose is released from the food we eat and enters the bloodstream, your body releases a hormone called insulin. In the UK, 4.6 million people are living with diabetes, 1.1 million of those are undiagnosed and over 12 million are at increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
