What is Diabetes?
There are two main types of diabetes:
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Type 1 Diabetes – There is a problem with the pancrease itself in that the pancrease no longer produces insulin.
Type 2 Diabetes – Typically in Type 2 Diabetes the pancrease still produces insulin. The problem is that the insulin does not get where it needs to go and there is a reduction in the sensitivity of the receptors in the body to insulin.
