About:

SUGAR
Glucose (also known as dextrose), is the simple sugar that is the chief source of energy. Glucose is found in the blood and is the main sugar that the body manufactures. The body makes glucose from all three elements of food: protein, fats, and carbohydrates, but the largest amount of glucose derives from carbohydrates. Glucose serves as the major source of energy for living cells. However, cells cannot use glucose without the help of insulin.
When there is a lack of insulin produced by pancreas or the failure to respond properly to insulin by cells in the body, properly due to persistently high elevations of blood glucose levels, our body is then unable to regulate the level of glucose in the blood, which resulted in the metabolic disorders called Diabetes.
