Diabetes: Should You Get Tested?
Diabetes is a serious disease that occurs when your body is unable to use or produce enough insulin, a hormone that converts glucose into energy. Our bodies break down the food we eat into glucose. Without the necessary amount of insulin, glucose builds up in your blood, leading to higher than normal blood sugar levels. Diabetes can cause serious medical conditions, including heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.
If you suspect you have diabetes, visit a physician for a diagnosis.
