Diabetes is a disease where the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the body has developed a resistance to it. There are four common types of diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, and Gestational Diabetes.
Type 1 Diabetes
In this type of diabetes the body attacks the pancreas, halting insulin production. Type 1 diabetes begins most often in childhood, but can being in adults as well. This type of diabetes leaves those who suffer from it dependent upon insulin medication.
