Diabetes is one of the serious diseases commonly seen in people. Usually, people get this problem when the Glucose level in the blood increases. This leads to dangerous problems which include: stroke or heart attack. There exist lots of things that can be taken care of to control diabetes. And if at all we are worried about this, we can lower the risk by keeping several things in mind.
There are 2 types of diabetes which include: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes does not allow the body to produce insulin. It usually develops in young adults and children but there is no age limit. Type 2 is one of the common types. Here, the body produces insulin but it is not used in the right way. When we are inactive or overweight, we often get Type 2 diabetes.
