About Diabetes

There are two main types of diabetes, type-1 and type-2. Type-2 is the most common form of diabetes, and it is possible to prevent and heal pre-diabetes and diabetes type 2 naturally with balanced nutrition and basic exercise.

What is Diabetes?

Type 1 diabetes: This is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Type-1 diabetes typically appears in adolescence, and the treatment aims at maintaining normal blood sugar levels through regular monitoring, insulin therapy, diet and exercise.

Pre-diabetes - This term means that you are at risk of getting type 2 diabetes and also heart disease. The good news is that if you have pre-diabetes you can reduce the risk of getting diabetes type 2 and even return to normal blood glucose levels.

Type 2 diabetes (formerly called adult-onset diabetes): This is the most common form of diabetes. It usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which the body cannot use insulin properly. People can develop this type of diabetes at any age and it is usually associated with today’s modern lifestyle of fast food, stress and limited exercise.
