Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the body either cannot produce insulin or properly make use of the insulin it produces. If not properly managed, diabetes can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. While simple lifestyle measures have been shown to be effective in preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes, the cause of type 1 diabetes remains unknown.
