Blood sugar (aka glucose) has an important chaperone in the body known as insulin. This powerful hormone helps usher glucose into the cells where it can be used for energy. Without insulin, cells would not have access to this vital fuel source. After a meal, the digestive system turns food into glucose. Glucose is sent into the bloodstream causing blood sugar levels to rise.
To control and balance these blood sugar levels, the pancreas produces insulin. Insulin then guides some of the glucose into cells that need it and stores the rest for later. It’s a pretty good system when it’s working properly.
