1. Monosaccharides or single sugars or simple sugars (for example Glucose, Fructose and Galactose)
2. Disaccharides or double sugars
3. Oligosaccharides and
4. Polysaccharides

What is INSULIN?
Insulin is a hormone produced by our digestive organ – Pancreas. This organ Pancreas is located behind the stomach that also produces many digestive enzymes which help in the digestive process. Insulin is secreted by specialized cell in pancreas called islet cells of pancreas.

This is the cause for high levels of glucose in the blood in Diabetes Mellitus and this inadequate amount of glucose inside the cells produces the classical signs and symptoms of diabetes and responsible for multi organ damage in diabetes.
