Diabetes is a disorder where the body can't properly use starches, sugars, fats and protein in food. This is because the body doesn't produce insulin or can't use it effectively. This disorder results in high blood sugar. There are several types of diabetes:
- Type 1: The body does not make insulin. This causes sugar to stay in the blood so it can't be used for energy.
- Type 2: Not enough insulin is made or the body can't use the available insulin successfully.
- Gestational: Women may not be able to make and use all the insulin needed during pregnancy.
