There are several types of diabetes. The two main types are Type 1 and Type 2. Before you develop Type 2, you almost always develop pre-diabetes. This occurs when your blood sugar level is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. There is also diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. In all cases there is an insulin problem, but for different reasons. We can help.
