Diabetes is a condition where the body can’t process sugar properly. This causes high levels of sugar in the blood and that can make it difficult for the body to work properly. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. With type 1 diabetes, the pancreas does not make the hormone insulin. Insulin tells cells to take sugar out of the blood and into the cell to give it energy. In type 2 diabetes, the body makes insulin but the cells don’t respond to it properly.
