What Is Diabetes

Diabetes

There are 3 types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. In all three cases, without treatment, the sugar level (= blood sugar) rises in the blood.
Diabetes type 1 is a diabetes affecting young people. It is due to the destruction of insulin producing pancreas cells.
Type 2 diabetes occurs mostly in overweight people after 40 years of age. It is due to a resistance of the body to the insulin, this hormone not succeeding in bringing the sugar in the cells.
Gestational diabetes is a diabetes occurring only during pregnancy. Women who suffer from it are subsequently at higher risk of type 2 diabetes.
