A: Our body needs calories for energy. Insulin is what helps take the calories (glucose) from our bloodstream and gets it into our muscles and cells to burn as energy!
With diabetes, that insulin relationship is altered: either our bodies don’t make enough insulin for our needs, or our bodies don’t “listen” to the insulin we produce.
Either way, our cells aren’t getting the energy that is waiting for it in our bloodstream! Your doctor can help figure out the best way to open back up the pathways to unlock that potential.
