Insulin, a hormone released from the pancreas, controls the magnitude of sugar in the blood. While or after someone eats or drinks, food is broken into materials, including sugar that the body needs to function. Sugar is soaked up into the bloodstream and then stimulates the pancreas to make insulin. This allows sugar to travel from the blood into the cells. Once inside the cells, sugar is converted to energy. This energy can be used immediately or stored for later usage.

If the body does not produce enough insulin to move the sugar into the cells, the resulting high levels of sugar in the blood and the unfit amount of sugar in the cells together produce the sign and symptoms of diabetes mellitus. Or high blood sugar levels.
