    Insulin is a hormone produced by the B cells of the pancreas. This hormone is continuously released from the pancreas into the blood stream. The insulin released increases as we see food or start chewing our food.
    Our body requires constant energy to carry out the day to day activities, this energy is released in the form of ATP (adenosine tri phosphate). For this ATP generation, the body needs glucose.The different types of carbs we take, directly breaks down to glucose. Even the proteins we consume can get converted to glucose by the process of gluconeogenesis , if the carbohydrate taken by the body cannot fulfill the energy requirements.Less ATP generation leads to hypoglycemia.
    Excess glucose in the body is converted into glycogen and stored in liver and muscles by insulin. Hence more carbohydrate meal m, means more insulin production so that the glucose level in the blood is maintained.

    However, in a diabetic,this insulin production is either reduced or the body cells develop resistance for insulin , so the glucose in the blood appears to be greater than normal and if not taken care of , can further affect other parts of the body resulting in cardiovascular diseases, retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy and nephropathy.
