Dealing With Diabetes Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic
Diabetes is a condition that causes blood glucose levels to rise higher than normal. People with type 1 diabetes don’t produce insulin, whereas people with type 2 diabetes don’t produce enough insulin, or their cells don’t use insulin as they should. Insulin is a hormone/protein that carries blood glucose into body cells. About 90 percent of people with diabetes have type 2.
