Diabetes : Type 1 vs Type 2 vs Gestational

Overview of Type 1 vs Type 2 vs Gestational

Type 1 Diabetes : If you have type 1 diabetes, your pancreas doesn’t make insulin or makes very little insulin. Insulin helps blood sugar enter the cells in your body for use as energy. Without insulin, blood sugar can’t get into cells and builds up in the bloodstream.

Type 2 Diabetes :It is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high.

Gestational Diabetes :It is a condition in which a hormone made by the placenta prevents the body from using insulin effectively.
