Diabetes is a serious health condition that affects the body’s ability to produce or use insulin. Unfortunately, a lot of people suffer from this disease.
There are two types of diabetes:
Type I diabetes— the body itself destroys the cells that produce insulin.
Type II diabetes— the body does not produce enough insulin and the cells are unable to use insulin properly.
What is more, type II diabetes is more common than Type I. In the UK, most of the adult people have type II diabetes.
Another type of diabetes is the gestational diabetes which develops during pregnancy. Some pregnant women have higher blood glucose and their body does not produce enough insulin to deal with it.
Insufficient amount of insulin in the body causes a situation that can’t be controlled. This state is followed by symptoms such as frequent urination, infections, blurred vision and extreme thirst.
