What is Diabetes?
When we eat, it is like filling our physical gas tank. The food we consume is turned into sugar and this is where our energy comes from. Insulin then transports the sugar out of the bloodstream and moves it into the body's cells to become fuel. When you have Diabetes, this does not happen. The sugar glucose stays in the blood instead of moving into the cells because the pancreas gland does not produce the insulin needed to complete the process.
What is Thyroid Disease?
The Thyroid gland makes, stores and releases thyroid hormones into your blood. These hormones affect almost every cell in the human body. The amount of these hormones are adjusted by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus. If you do not have enough thyroid hormone your body will slow down, If you have too much, your body metabolism speeds up dangerously.
