Diabetes can affect anyone: children and adults of any age.2


Plate of Healthy Food

Diabetes is a condition that occurs when glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, is needed to transfer this glucose from your blood to your cells to be converted into energy.2


Sometimes your body doesnt make enough, or any, insulin. When this happens, glucose stays in your blood without reaching your cells.2

Blood Cells

When someone experiences high blood glucose levels due to a lack of insulin, diabetes can develop.
Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause health problems, including heart disease, nerve damage, eye problems, and kidney disease. You can take various measures to prevent or manage diabetes.2

  • If you have type 1 diabetes, your body does not produce insulin on its own because your immune system attacks and destroys the cells in your pancreas that make insulin
  • Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed during childhood or during the teenage years, although it can appear at any age
  • Having a parent or a sibling with type 1 diabetes might increase the chance of developing type1 diabetes


  • If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make or use insulin enough to produce energy
  • You can develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even during childhood. However, this type of diabetes occurs most often in middle-aged and older adults
  • Risk factors for type 2 diabetes include a family history of diabetes or obesity

If you have been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, talk to your doctor about the best way to manage it, including whether insulin is an appropriate option for you.2



Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that helps transfer the glucose in the food you eat from your blood to the cells in your muscles, fat, and liver, where it is used for energy.
