WHAT IS DIABETES

The simple explanation

Diabetes is a common condition affecting young and old, male and female and people of all races. It occurs when the pancreas, a gland near the stomach about the size of your fist fails to produce enough insulin to control the glucose/sugar in the blood. In type 1 diabetes the pancreas fails to produce any insulin. In type 2 the pancreas still produces insulin but not in sufficient quantity to control blood glucose levels. Type 1 diabetics need to inject insulin to control blood glucose levels. Type 2 diabetics usually require oral medication to increase insulin sensitivity and make the best use of the reduced natural insulin available. Both types of diabetes requires dietary control and exercise to maintain non diabetic glucose levels. There are several other and much more rare types of diabetes.
