About Diabetes

Diabetes refers to a group of diseases that affect how your body uses blood sugar (glucose).

Insulin is a hormone that helps the body's cells use sugar for energy. It also helps the body store extra sugar in muscle, fat, and liver cells. Without insulin, this sugar can't get into your cells to do its work. It stays in your blood instead. Your blood sugar level then gets too high.

Most Common Types of Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes

  • A chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar.

Type 1 diabetes

  • A chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin.


  • A condition in which blood sugar is high, but not high enough to be type 2 diabetes.

Gestational diabetes

  • A form of high blood sugar affecting pregnant women.

To enroll you in the Diabetes Health Management Program, we may use information from –
