Many of the foods we eat are broken down into glucose which passes into the bloodstream to provide energy for the cells. However, glucose needs insulin to enter the cells.
People with diabetes have too much glucose in the blood because it does not pass into the cells as easily. This is due to either inadequate levels of insulin produced by the body or resistance by the cells to the effects of insulin.
Mission Health Promotion Center offers programs for patients with diabetes to help reduce insulin resistance, education people regarding diabetes and learn how to prevent the complications of diabetes. Some types of diabetes may even be reversed completely.
