photo sugarWhat is diabetes? It’s actually a group of diseases that result in too much sugar in the blood–a condition called high blood glucose.

Most common types:

  • Type 2 diabetes: A chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar (glucose).
  • Type 1 diabetes: A chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin.
  • Prediabetes: A condition in which blood sugar is high, but not high enough to be type 2 diabetes.
  • Gestational diabetes: A form of high blood sugar affecting pregnant women.
