Diabetes is a leading cause of death and disability. It is a chronic condition that occurs when the body does not properly use insulin (or does not produce it), which results in high glucose levels in the blood. The three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. When lifestyle changes and medical treatment are combined to maintain and control blood sugar in the normal range, this approach to managing diabetes can minimize the serious complications of the disease.
