Did you know that more than 24 million Americans have diabetes and at least 6 million aren’t aware they have the disease? Diabetes falls into three types: Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes. The focus of this article is on Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults. Type 1 occurs in only about 5 percent of the cases, and when a person is affected by the disease, his body no longer produces insulin, a hormone needed to convert sugar to energy. Type 2 diabetes is the most common. In Type 2 the body does not use insulin properly. At first the pancreas makes extra insulin to compensate but eventually can’t make enough to keep up.
