Our body produces insulin, the hormone, which regulates blood glucose levels. Diabetes is a condition that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood glucose.
People can suffer from 2 Types of Diabetes.
Type II: It is a non-insulin-dependent type, where people are unable to use the insulin generated by the body. More than 05% of people fall into this type. This type of diabetes is largely the result of excess body weight and physical inactivity.
Type I: It is an Insulin-dependent type, in which people are unable to produce insulin by their own and require a daily dose of Insulin shots.
