Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high. There are 2 main types of Diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 2 diabetes is far more common than type 1. In the UK, around 90% of all adults with diabetes have type 2. People most at risk include those over the age of 40, those who are of a South Asian descent, and those who are overweight.
