Many people suffer from diabetes and it is becoming Nutonen a world wide epidemic. We have heard of many people suffering from this disease and we often wonder what it is. Today we will learn about diabetes, what causes diabetes and how can we naturally control diabetes.

It is estimated that 23.6 million people in the United States -- 7.8 percent of the population -- have diabetes. This is a serious, lifelong condition. Of those, 17.9 million have been diagnosed, and about 5.7 million people have not yet been diagnosed. Each year, about 1.6 million people aged 20 or older are diagnosed with diabetes. So one can imagine how dreadful this disease is.

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, which affects the way our bodies use digested food for growth and energy. When we eat food, it is broken down into glucose, the form of sugar in the blood. This is the main source of fuel for the body. Glucose is passed into the blood stream for absorption by the cells to serve as fuel for the body.
