By Shankar.

Diabetes is a health disorder. The number of diabetic patients is rapidly increasing in this world. Diabetes is a disease that needs to be treated in proper manner. Our daily intake of sugar is normally broken down into sugar, which is the glucose in our body. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose to get into the cells.

There are two types of diabetes – Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes cannot produce insulin completely. Type 2 diabetes can produce insulin; however, the cells become resistant to it. In both the types of diabetes, the glucose cannot enter into the cells and as a result, the glucose floats in the blood. Depending on the severity of the diabetes, a person has to take medications to cure it.
