A person with diabetes will experience high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). The glucose from the food we eat needs to be transferred from the bloodstream into the cells to provide energy. A hormone called insulin usually assists this transfer. A diabetic person either produces none or not enough of this crucial hormone — and hyperglycemia can occur.
