What is diabetes?
There are three main types of diabetes:
• Type 1 diabetes – Your body does
not make insulin. This is a problem because you need insulin to take
the sugar (glucose) from the foods you eat and turn it into energy for
your body. You need to take insulin every day to live.
• Type 2
diabetes – Your body does not make or use insulin well. You may need to
take pills or insulin to help control your diabetes. Type 2 is the most
common type of diabetes.
• Gestational (jest-TAY-shun-al)
diabetes – Some women get this kind of diabetes when they are pregnant.
Most of the time, it goes away after the baby is born. But even if it
goes away, these women and their children have a greater chance of
getting diabetes later in life.

may have heard people say they have “a touch of diabetes” or that their
“sugar is a little high.” These words suggest that diabetes is not a
serious disease. That is not correct. Diabetes is serious, but you can
learn to manage it.
People with diabetes need to make healthy
food choices, stay at a healthy weight, move more every day, and take
their medicine even when they feel good. It’s a lot to do. It’s not
easy, but it’s worth it!
