What Is Diabetes – Diabetes Series

By Global Health Media Project: https://globalhealthmedia.org

This video explains what diabetes is. The video shows how when we eat food, most of it is broken down into sugar. The sugar in our blood is controlled by insulin. But if we don’t have enough insulin, sugar levels in our blood will rise and can cause damage to the body.

This video is one of over 30 videos in our series on diabetes prevention and care. The videos are targeted for three audiences: health care workers – to help guide providers in developing countries in good diabetes care; people with diabetes – to improve their knowledge and home care; and the general public – to increase their understanding of diabetes, with the aim of greater awareness of the risks and symptoms, and ways to prevent type 2 diabetes.
