"Diabetes is caused when the pancreas (a gland behind the stomach) does not produce any or enough of the hormone insulin. It may also happen if the body cannot use insulin properly.

Insulin is very important because it is the only hormone in the body that can lower glucose levels. Without it, the glucose levels would build up in the blood stream after eating and spill out into the urine."
