Diabetes is a disease in which the body produces either too little insulin, no insulin, or the body does not respond effectively to insulin being produced. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas. Food is digested and processed into glucose which the body uses for energy. Insulin helps move glucose from the bloodstream to the cells. If someone has insulin resistance the effect is the same as if too little or no insulin is being produced at all. In the case of Type II diabetes people produce insulin, but either their pancreas cannot produce the proper amount or their body has become resistant to insulin. When the glucose cannot get into the body's cells the glucose builds up in the blood. This can result in fatigue since the body's cells have no energy, and it causes a buildup of glucose in the bloodstream. A buildup of glucose in the blood will cause an increase in urination. This means the kidneys lose the glucose through urination, but so much water is lost there is a danger of dehydration.
