Medical Word - Antibodies (in diabetes)

Ans : Proteins that the body makes to protect itself from foreign substances. In diabetes, the body sometimes makes antibodies to work against pork or beef insulins because they are not exactly the same as human insulin or because they have impurities. The antibodies may keep the insulin from working well and may even cause the person with diabetes to have an allergic reaction to the animal source.
