Diabetes is a disease of the body's metabolism. It comes in three types:
Type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin
Type 2 diabetes, in which the body cannot use the insulin effectively; this is also called a resistance to insulin
Gestational diabetes, which occurs only during pregnancy
