That excessive thirst, feeling very hungry despite eating to satisfaction, complaining of an often call of nature, loosing or gaining weight all of a sudden are among the complaints list of many today.

But just how does diabetes come about? Is it about eating “sweet” and “sugary” food stuffs? No! Diabetes is a condition whereby the body does not regulate the sugar stored as glucose in the blood. When you consume food rich in carbohydrates for example, rice, potatoes and ugali, your body breaks them into sugars. These sugars are transported by the blood to the rest of the body for use as energy. To regulate this process, the hormone insulin is responsible to ensure that the process is successful. If a person’s body does not make this insulin or does not respond well to insulin, blood sugar increases automatically thus causing diabetes. Your normal sugar level should always be between 3 to 7 mmols as per the Kenya Diabetes management institute.
