Diabetes is a disease that effects how your body uses your blood sugar. Glucose is vital to your health because it’s an important source of energy for the cells that make up your muscles and tissues and is the main source of the brain. No matter what type of diabetes you have, it can lead to a lot of sugar in your blood. Too much sugar in your blood can lead to serious health problems. Diabetes can occur when the pancreas produces very little or no insulin, or when the body does not respond appropriately to insulin.

Symptoms

  • Increased thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent infections, such as gums or skin infections

If you’re overweight you should probably drop some pounds overall. Excess weight puts a strain on your body in all sorts of ways and a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, etc. “In your body, what exercise does, is it allows you to bind or uptake efficiently more insulin”- Marrero
