what is diabetes?

About 90% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. It can come on slowly, usually over the age of 40.

Diabetes is a serious condition where your blood glucose level is too high. There are two main types, Type 1 and Type 2. They’re different conditions, but they’re both serious.

The signs may not be obvious, or there may be no signs at all, therefore it might be up to 10 years before you find out you have it. That’s why it’s very important to know the diabetes risk factors.
