About Diabetes

Back to the top

Diabetes mellitus, or diabetes, is a metabolic disease that impacts your body's ability to utilize blood sugar (glucose). Glucose is a key energy source for the brain, as well as the cells that make up your muscles and tissues. The underlying cause of diabetes differs depending on the type. Regardless of the type of diabetes you have, the disease may cause an excess of sugar in your blood. Blood sugar levels that are too high can cause significant health issues, such as damage to your nerves and organs.

Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes are both chronic diabetic conditions. Prediabetes and gestational diabetes are two diabetes disorders that may be reversible. Prediabetes is characterized by abnormally high blood sugar levels (without being high enough to be categorized as diabetes). Unless proper steps are taken to prevent development, prediabetes is frequently the prelude to diabetes. Gestational diabetes develops throughout pregnancy, although it may go away once the baby is born.
