...she has diabetes. I don't understand what that was, so I asked about You know what the digestive system is, right Tim? Sure. Your body gets energy from food. But for people like me, people who has diabetes there is a part of the digestive system that doesn't work right the sugars that are in food are carried by the blood to all cells in the body what is supposed to happen is that the pancreas makes something called insuline Insuline acts like a key that opens a lock for energy in your body's cells But for people with diabetes there is not enough insuline or the body can't use the insuline to get the sugars that come with the food out of the blood and into the cells for energy and that's the problem, right? Ok, because the cells aren't getting the energy they need and, just as that the sugar that is not getting into the cells builts up into the blood, that can hurt the body When does she find out she has diabetes? A few months ago, she is really thirsty all the time and she, last week to the doctor I have what's called type I diabetes that's when the body doesn't make insuline.
