Your Diabetes Guide

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic conditions in the world and occurs when the body fails to process glucose correctly. Many people have diabetes mellitus, but remain undiagnosed. Types of diabetes include diabetes type 1, a progressive autoimmune disease usually diagnosed in children and young adults, whereas type 2 diabetes can be caused by unhealthy lifestyle choices and usually starts in adulthood. Women can also develop signs of diabetes while they are pregnant, called gestational diabetes. It is possible to live a healthy life by identifying the symptoms of diabetes early, receiving proper medical care and making healthy lifestyle changes. Learn more about diabetes here.
