Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta cells of the pancreas, required to utilize glucose from digested food as an energy source. Chronic hyperglycemia is associated with microvascular and macrovascular complications that can lead to visual impairment, blindness, kidney disease, nerve damage,
amputations, heart disease, and stroke.
Diabetes can not be cured but managed with reduced food intake, increased physical activity, and
oral medications or insulin.
