What does it mean to have diabetes?
You probably already know that there are three types of diabetes: diabetes type 1, diabetes type 2 and gestational diabetes. But what, exactly, is the difference?
In all forms of diabetes, your body fails to properly process the glucose you need to obtain energy from the food you eat. It occurs when the pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin or enough insulin to allow the glucose to enter the body’s cells. High glucose levels in the blood is a symptom of type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes more commonly appears in childhood, but can be diagnosed at any age. It’s an auto-immune disease in which the cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin, are destroyed by the immune system. People with type 1 diabetes are dependent on daily insulin injections, as their bodies produce no insulin.
