Observed every November, American Diabetes Month is an important element to focus our nation's attention on the disease and the tens of millions of people affected by it. In 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, had diabetes.
Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood.
