Type 2 diabetes – a milder form of diabetes than Type 1, it is mostly found in adults and a few obese kids. Here insulin is produced by pancreas but are not used by the body due to insulin resistance or lack of insulin sensitivity of the body.

Gestational diabetes – this is a reversible form of diabetes, that is triggered with a pregnancy, diagnosed during the middle or late months of pregnancy.

Symptoms of diabetes

Diabetes when left unaddressed can have complicated repercussions on the body. With lifestyle choices making us prone to the disease, it is advisable to have a periodic lifestyle screening tests added to our schedules.
