Diabetes affects how the body controls blood glucose (or blood sugar). Diabetes can exist in two forms: as a chronic condition, type 1 and type 2 diabetes; or a reversible condition, gestational diabetes and pre-diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes affects more than 25 million people in the United States and is a leading cause of heart attack and stroke.
