What is Insulin?

Insulin is a hormone that allows your body to use glucose (sugar) for energy. Specifically, insulin helps glucose move from your bloodstream into your body’s cells. When your insulin level is off, glucose can build up in your bloodstream. When you have diabetes, you either don’t make enough insulin or your body is resistant to your insulin. Both of these situations are controllable.
