Diabetes is a common health condition. About 1.8 million people in the UK are known to have type 2 diabetes, which equates to about three in every 100 people. And an estimated one million people in the UK have diabetes, without even knowing it.

Diabetes occurs when the level of glucose in the blood becomes too high because the body is unable to utilise it properly. Glucose is a special type of sugar that the body uses for energy. The body gets its glucose supply from starchy foods (such as bread, rice, potatoes, chapatis, yams and plantain), and sugar and other sweet foods.

For us to remain healthy, our blood glucose levels should be neither too high nor too low. Normally insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps glucose pass from the blood into the body's cells to be used as fuel to supply energy. In people with diabetes this process is disrupted.
