Glucose is the gasoline that the body’s cells need to do their job. The body removes it from food and uses insulin to get it to food. However, in people with diabetes, either the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body is not able to use it. As a result, glucose builds up in the blood instead of reaching the cells, leaving the body deprived of the energy it needs and fatigue appears, both physical and mental. The only way to regain energy is by controlling diabetes through a diet that balances sugar levels and exercise, which makes blood glucose better transported from the blood to the cells.
