Diabetes Melitus is a group of diseases that result in elevated levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. This is because insulin, the hormone that “pushes” glucose into the cells, is either not being produced sufficiently, or the body’s cells are resistant to the insulin. Three main types of diabetes are recognized. These include Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational Diabetes.
In this section of the web site, we will focus mainly upon Type 2 Diabetes, as it has the largest impact upon the population. Also, lifestyle treatment of Type 2 Diabetes is also appropriate for Type 1 and Gestational Diabetes.
