Diabetes Mellitus

A condition characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from the body's inability to use blood glucose for energy.

In Type 1 diabetes, the pancreas no longer makes insulin and therefore blood glucose cannot enter the cells to be used for energy.

In Type 2 diabetes, either the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body is unable to use insulin correctly.
