For some people, when they think of Diabetes, they think of it as one disease. However, it is really three separate, yet related, diseases: Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes is the most common of the three and the one that most people are at risk of developing. When someone faces a Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis, it means that the body is not using insulin properly due to insulin resistance. At first, the body will produce more insulin to compensate, but as the disease progresses, the body is not able to counter the effects, causing the blood sugar levels in the blood to rise. Those who have high blood sugar levels, but are not quite high enough to be considered diabetic, are considered to be prediabetic, meaning insulin resistance is occurring.
