Diabetes is a chronic medical condition that affects how your body processes glucose, a type of sugar found in many foods. Normally, your pancreas produces a hormone called insulin, which helps your body use glucose for energy. However, in people with diabetes, their pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin or their body doesn't respond to insulin properly, leading to high levels of glucose in the blood.

There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, is a condition in which the body becomes resistant to insulin or doesn't produce enough insulin. Type 2 diabetes is much more common than type 1, and it is often associated with lifestyle factors like obesity and physical inactivity.

Pre-diabetes is a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. People with pre-diabetes have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but they can often prevent or delay the onset of diabetes through lifestyle changes like losing weight, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. Pre-diabetes often has no symptoms, so it's important to get regular check-ups with your healthcare provider and to get tested if you have any risk factors, such as being overweight or having a family history of diabetes. If left untreated, pre-diabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes, as well as an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
