According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), diabetes is defined as a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. There are 2 types. Type 1 diabetes is a disease of the immune system, the body’s system for fighting infection. People with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin daily to live. Type1 diabetes can occur at any age, but it occurs most often in children and young adults. Type 2 diabetic cannot use its insulin very well.
