What Is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic condition that occurs when blood glucose levels remain above normal limits. This happens if the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces.

Type 1 diabetes is due to deficient insulin production while Type 2 diabetes results from the body’s ineffective use of insulin.

Over 90% of individuals with diabetes around the world have Type 2 diabetes.
