What is Diabetes (diabetes mellitus - DM) / Sugar?

Diabetes mellitus (DM), is commonly referred to as Diabetes. Diabetes is the condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy. The food we eat is turned into glucose, or sugar, for our body to use for energy. The pancreas, makes insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our body. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn't make enough insulin or can't use its own insulin as well as it should. This causes sugars to build up in your blood. This is why many people refer to diabetes as sugar.
