Diabetes

With 17 million people or 6.2% of the United States diagnosed with diabetes, its hard for some one not to be effected by the disease in some way. With 7 members of my family including my grandfather and uncle having this disease it hits very close to home for me.
Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin and is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States.
There are 2 major Types of Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes also called juvenile onset is when the body does not produce any insulin. People with Type 1 diabetes need to take daily injections of insulin to survive. This most often occurs in children and young adults and accounts for 5-10% of all cases..
The second major type of Diabetes is called Type 2 diabetes or adult on set. This is a metabolic disorder resulting from the body?s inability to make enough or properly use insulin. Type 2 diabetes is the most common and accounts for 90-95% of all cases
