Diabetes is caused by an autoimmune disorder which is a problem with the body's immune system. In a healthy body, specialized cells called beta cells in the pancreas make insulin. Insulin controls the amount of sugar in the blood by moving it into the cells, where it can be used by the body for energy. The immune system mistakes beta cells for invaders and attacks them. When enough beta cells are destroyed, symptoms of diabetes appear. In case of diabetes, People either does not make enough insulin or are unable to make efficient use of whatever insulin they do manage to produce. People with diabetes usually need regular injections of insulin. Diabetes can often be controlled with a special diet, exercise, and oral medicines.
