For most people, when we eat food it’s digested and broken down into glucose. Insulin produced by the pancreas helps move the glucose into our cells which then turns it into energy. However, for Type 1 diabetics, they do not produce enough insulin or any at all, preventing glucose into our cells to turn into energy.
