Diabetes is a chronic disease brought about by the body’s inability to process sugar effectively. It occurs when the pancreas cannot produce insulin, or when the body cannot put it to use. This means there are high levels of glucose in the blood, which can damage organs, tissues and limbs if it remains high for a long time.

There are two types of diabetes: 1 and 2. Type 1 can only be treated with insulin, whereas type 2 can be prevented through doing sport, taking exercise and diet.
