All about food

Food gives your body energy. Your body changes the food you eat into glucose, a type of sugar.

Normally, the body makes insulin, which helps to move the sugar from the bloodstream into the cells where it's used for energy.

When you have type 1 diabetes, the body doesn't make insulin so you have to take insulin shots to move the sugar into your cells.
