Natural remedies to combat diabetes
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas responsible for regulating the passage of glucose from the blood into cells. When the pancreas fails to produce insulin, the result is type 1 diabetes. On the other hand, if the pancreas produces insulin but it is not enough or the body has become resistant to it, then the result is type 2 diabetes.
