Diabetes is a long-term condition that affects how your body breaks down food and uses it for energy. Most food that you eat is turned into sugar, or glucose, which is your main source of energy. Your pancreas produces a hormone called insulin to help regulate glucose and carry it to your cells to be used for energy. But sometimes, your body can’t make enough insulin, or any at all, so the glucose builds up in your blood. That’s why diabetes is sometimes called “having the sugars.” 1,2

An estimated 30.3 million people in the U.S. have diabetes (almost 10% of the population), and about one in four people with diabetes don’t know they have the disease.3
