Diabetes is a disease which is caused by high glucose levels in our blood. Diabetes has no cure but can be controlled with proper diet, exercise and medication. The most common types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. Type-1 diabetes: If you have type-1 diabetes, your body doesn’t produce insulin. The immune system attacks and destroys the cells in your pancreas that make insulin. Type-1 is diagnosed in children and young adults but it can appear at any age. People with type-1 diabetes need to take insulin every day to stay alive. Type-2 Diabetes If you have type-2 diabetes, your body doesn’t make or use insulin that is produced. This type of diabetes is common in middle aged to elderly population and is the most common type. Gestational Diabetes This type of diabetes develops in women during pregnancy and goes away after the baby is born. But if you have had gestational diabetes you have a superior chance of developing Type-1 diabetes later.
