Diabetes is a condition in which your body does not make enough insulin to keep your blood sugar levels steady. Insulin is a hormone that removes sugar (glucose) from your blood when your blood sugar is too high. Diabetes is the seventh cause of death in the United States, while the rest of the world has a much higher mortality rate. This is especially true in middle- to low-income countries, as these countries are often unable to access proper treatment for this condition. About 90-95 percent of people in the United States with diabetes have Type 2, while about 5 percent have Type 1, and the remainder has gestational diabetes. People with diabetes can still live well in spite of their condition!
