There are 2 major types of diabetes corresponding to unique set of causes.
Type 1 Diabetes is a congenital condition which can either be detected as early as within a few days or weeks of birth, or it can manifest in adulthood. In this condition the body fails to produce insulin which ensures proper absorption of glucose in cells. The patient must be administered insulin as it is not produced by the body.
Type 2 Diabetes is the other, more prevalent kind of diabetes. It has a wide variety of causes that range from genetic predisposition to dietary habits and even chronic stress. In this type of diabetes, insulin is produced by the pancreas but isn’t received by the cells, leading to malabsorption of glucose and high blood sugar levels.
Both the types of diabetes can be diagnosed by measuring Hemoglobin A1c levels, which indicate an average measure of blood sugar levels for the past 2-3 months.

Conventional medicine works to alleviate the symptoms rather than the root cause of any disease. Faced with a lack of in-depth understanding of the disease, most patients have to remain on medication which progressively increases, leading to loss of productivity and poor quality of life.
