What Is Diabetes?

What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both.
Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience frequent urination, they will become increasingly thirsty and hungry 
There are 3 types of diabetes:
Type 1 Diabetes
The body does not produce insulin. Some people may refer to this type as insulin-dependentdiabetes, juvenile diabetes, or early-onset diabetes. People usually develop type 1 diabetes before their 40th year, often in early adulthood or teenage years.
Type 2 Diabetes
The body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or the cells in the body do not react to insulin (insulin resistance).

Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are of this type.
Type 3 Diabetes

Diagnosis of gestational diabetes is made during pregnancy.

  • Hi Judy, in addition to your explanations please allow me to add that scientists found out that the reason for diabetes is a low level of glutathione one of the master antioxidants. Can you imagine what will happen when the naturally in the body produced antioxidants increase by 500%?

  • Thanks for this timely article. I have a close friend who is suffering from Type 2 and is having a rough time coping. Added to that he had a heart attack which compounds his problem.

  • Hi Susan,

    If you want to check out my website I think it could really help her.

  • My daughter is getting retested because her fasting blood sugar level was high.  She did have gestational diabetes with her last two pregnancies and she knew she was likely to develop diabetes.  She's only in her early 30's ... hopefully she'll get all the help she needs to get it under control. 

    Thanks for writing on an important topic.
