Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.
If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.
Type 1 Diabetes, is also at times referred to as juvenile diabetes, IDDM, or even Diabetes mellitus type 1. This variety of diabetes is caused by the destruction of insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas which is caused by an autoimmune response. The consequent result of this is an increase of glucose in both the urine and the blood, due to the lack of the insulin in the body, or adequate amounts of it.
