Diabetes in African Americans:
What is Diabetes?
What happens in the body…
Diabetes is a disorder of the metabolism. Metabolism is the way the body uses food for energy and growth. People eat food and it is normally broken down into glucose, glucose is a form of sugar in the blood and fuels the body’s demands for energy. Glucose is used by cells for growth and energy. Insulin is what is needed for glucose to get into the cells, insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas. After eating the pancreas releases insulin to assist the glucose in the bloodstream to move into the cells. When diabetes is present there is little or no insulin released or it is released and the cells do not respond right. As a result glucose begins to build up in the blood and is filtered out by the kidneys and passed in the urine. The body then has lost its main source of fuel.

When you seek healthcare for your diabetes at a public health department, this is the type of nurse you will see. They consign services within a community-based model. These nurses are trained to be able to work within different populations (such as African Americans) within different communities.
