Diabetes is one of the most common diseases in modern day and the fact that it’s a life-long disease makes the situation even more serious. It’s a condition where your body’s insulin levels get very low and this leads to high levels of blood sugar. If you develop diabetes it means that you’ll have to take medications for the rest of your life to prevent life-threatening consequences.
There are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body doesn’t produce insulin at all, while type 2 is when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin. The most common one is type 2.
Many women develop type 2 diabetes during pregnancy, when the high levels of glucose in the blood cannot produce enough insulin. If you suffer from insulin deficiency you’d experience the following symptoms: infections, extreme thirst, frequent bathroom visits and blurred vision. If you have some of these symptoms you should visit a doctor and get your blood sugar levels tested
