What is Diabetes?

Diabetes comes in type 1 and type 2 as a chronic disease caused by anĀ  inability to convert food to energy effectively. When you eat, your body will turn the food into glucose, which is a type of sugar used by cells for energy.

In order for your cells to use glucose, it needs a hormone called insulin. Those with diabetes don’t produce enough insulin or their body doesn’t use insulin properly.

Type 1 diabetes is marked by an immune system malfunction causing the body to destroy cells in the pancreas responsible for creating insulin. If you have type 1 diabetes and you don’t gain treatment, it can become fatal.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common type and also known as adult-onset diabetes. However, many children are becoming diagnosed with type 2 diabetes every year. It’s linked to obesity and lifestyle factors. Type 2 diabetes requires proper management to preserve health.

In addition to type 1 and type 2 diabetes, some pregnant women may develop gestational diabetes. This type of diabetes will likely resolve after childbirth. However, women developing gestational diabetes will be at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes for the rest of their lives.
