There are basically three types of diabetes
Type 1 Diabetes: In this type of diabetes, the patient body does not produce insulin, which the cells require to absorb glucose. This constitutes about 10% of people suffering from diabetes.
Type 2 Diabetes: This is the most common type of diabetes, which constitutes about 90% of the diabetes population. This type of diabetes, the body does not produce enough insulin required for glucose absorption in the cell. Type II diabetes are once called non-insulin dependent diabetes.
Gestational Diabetes: This type occurs in females during pregnancy.
Pre-Diabetes: When the glucose contents of the bloodstream are higher than the average level, but not high enough for people to detect the impeding diabetes. In this period, the cells in the body have start developing resistant to insulin. The type 2 diabetes patients always develop pre-diabetes before it will escalate to the type II.
