Glucose is the basic fuel for the cells in the body and insulin takes the glucose from the body into the cells.
When a person has diabetes, the body either does not produce enough insulin (Type I) or cannot use the insulin produced as well as it should (Type II). This causes the glucose to accumulate in our blood and not get used up
