Blood Sugar
The Natural Balance
Produced in the pancreas
After eating, your blood sugar rises which triggers a rise in insulin.
Insulin helps the body absorb glucose where needed.
When you eat, the body breaks down some foods into sugar.
The sugar is converted into glucose, and is carried to areas of the body to be used for energy.
"Blood sugar" or Glucose is the body's main energy source
Insulin level is low
Type 2 Diabetes can be detected by measuring levels of blood glucose.
Insulin is not helping the sugar to become absorbed in the blood.
