Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas which regulates amount of glucose in the blood. Glucose is derived from foods with carbohydrates( garri, pounded yam, potatoes,
plantain, rice, fruit, bread etcs) you eat for energy.
Without insulin cells cannot absorb energy (sugar/glucose) to produce energy. If you don't have enough energy
, you feel weak. Insulin prevents your blood sugar level getting too high (hyperglycemia) meaning you have high sugar level in your blood. When your blood sugar level too low it is hypoglycemia
and can be dangerous - a silent killer!
Your blood sugar is considered low when it drops to 70mg/dL. It is about creating a balance
between high blood sugar and low blood sugar.
