Diabetes, a chronic metabolic disorder, is a term that encompasses a group of diseases characterized by elevated blood glucose levels, commonly known as blood sugar. This condition arises due to the body’s inability to effectively produce or utilize insulin, a hormone essential for regulating blood sugar levels. Insulin plays a pivotal role in allowing cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream, providing them with the energy needed for optimal functioning.
