Diabetes is a disease that affects many people all over the world. Although it cannot be physically seen, many people do not realize the seriousness of effects diabetes can have on an individual. Diabetes is a disease in which the body stops producing insulin or stops responding to the production of insulin. There are two major types of diabetes, Type one diabetes and Type two diabetes. Each type will present different symptoms and effects to the individual, meaning there are a lot of different factors that can have a role in the process of becoming a diabetic. Studies show that there is a dramatic increase in the number of individuals throughout the world that are being diagnosed with type two diabetes. The problem Americans face when it comes to diabetes is the lack of knowledge.
