Diabetes is a metabolism disorder, which negatively affects the way the body converts food into energy. This chronic condition affects approximately 6.3 percent of the U.S. population, and can occur in people of any age. There are three main types of diabetes (type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes), all of which can be diagnosed using a blood glucose test. Possible treatment options include following a healthy food plan, losing weight, and injecting insulin.
