A group of chronic diseases that causes your body to lose control of your blood glucose levels, which lets them get too high. Type 1 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to produce insulin, a hormone that moves glucose into your cells to be used for energy. In type 2 diabetes, your body’s cells become resistant to insulin, meaning that it is difficult for them to get the energy they need.
