People diagnosed with diabetes have high blood sugar levels because there is not enough insulin to help control and move the blood sugar. The lack of insulin and resistance to insulin prevents the sugar from moving from the bloodstream into areas of the body that need energy like the muscles.
There are 3 types of diabetes, type 1, type 2, and gestational. Anyone can get type 1 diabetes, which is when the body makes little to no insulin and is most common in children, teens and young adults. Type 2 diabetes is the most common diabetes and effects adults, but due to an increase in obesity in the United States, more teens and young adults are being diagnosed with it. Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnant women with no history of diabetes to develop high blood sugar.
The most common symptoms of high blood pressure levels include blurred vision, excessive thirst, fatigue, frequent urination, hunger and rapid weight loss.

Treatment includes exercise, diet and medication and if not treated can lead to serious health complications. Some complications include blindness, increase in infection on leg(s) which will need amputation, heart attack, stroke, nerve damage, and kidney damage.
