Diabetes

Diabetes is a serious medical condition that affects millions of people all over the world. It occurs when the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin or can’t properly use the insulin it does produce.

Insulin is a hormone that helps to regulate blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are too high, it can lead to serious health problems like heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure.

There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children or young adults, and is caused by the body’s inability to produce insulin.

Type 2 diabetes is much more common and usually occurs in adults over the age of 40. It occurs when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, or can’t properly use the insulin it does produce.

There is no cure for diabetes, but it can be managed through a healthy lifestyle and proper medical care. With proper treatment, people with diabetes can lead normal, healthy lives.
