Advanced diabetic treatment
Diabetes is a lifelong disease in which the body cannot process sugar properly. When people who have diabetes eat glucose, which is found in foods such as breads, potatoes and sweets, it cannot be converted into energy. Instead of being converted into energy, the glucose stays in the blood. This is why people who have diabetes have blood sugar (glucose) that is too high.
