Living With Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is a disease where the pancreas does not produce the hormone insulin, which helps the body to manage glucose levels in the blood.
Living With Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a disease where the pancreas does not adequately produce insulin, or the body cannot properly use the insulin it does produce.
Living With Gestational Diabetes
Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. Your body cannot produce enough insulin to handle the effects.
Living With Prediabetes
Prediabetes refers to blood glucose (sugar) levels that are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes (i.e. a fasting plasma glucose level of 7.0 mmol/L or A1C of 6.5 percent or higher).
Taking Charge Of Diabetes
Having an active lifestyle is important to living a healthy life. This is especially true for diabetics. The reason for this is that when you are active, your cells become more sensitive to insulin so it can work more effectively.
