Doctor checking blood sugar level with glucometer

Diabetes Type 1 And Type 2

Diabetes is a chronic health condition that affects how your body turns your blood sugar, also known as glucose, into energy. With type 1 diabetes, your pancreas produces little to no insulin, making sugar build up in your bloodstream. This type of diabetes is often diagnosed in children and young adults or sometimes in older individuals. With Type 2 diabetes, your body has trouble processing your blood sugar. Your body does not use insulin well, and it can’t keep your blood sugar at normal levels. This type of diabetes often develops in adults. Both types of diabetes, when left untreated, can lead to serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness or limb amputations.
