Diabetes is a very common chronic (long term) metabolic disorder. It results from uncontrolled glucose levels in the system due to insufficient insulin (produced by the pancreas) to break down sugar. Your cells could also have become resistant to insulin. There are two types: Type 1 diabetes requires daily insulin shots and can onset rapidly - however type 2 can sometimes occur without people being aware that they have it.
