What is diabetes?
Put simply, diabetes is an inability to metabolise the sugars and carbohydrates in the body due to a lack of the hormone insulin.
There are two types:
- Type I (insulin dependent diabetes), usually occurs in people aged 10-20 years
- Type II (non-insulin-dependent diabetes) occurs in older people. Type II can sometimes be controlled through a careful diet.
