There are three types of diabetes – type 1, 2 and gestational diabetes. Type 1 is when the pancreas (gland in the abdomen) stops producing insulin. And, this is usually seen in young children and adults under the age of 40. Type 2 is the most common, and occurs when the insulin is either not enough or doesn’t work properly. The likelihood of you developing it increases after 45. Gestational diabetes is temporary, and causes high blood sugar. That can affect your pregnancy and baby’s health.
