Q:

What are the different types of diabetes?

A:

The three main types of diabetes are Type I, Type II, and gestational diabetes.

In Type I diabetes, the body is unable to produce its own insulin. In Type II diabetes, the body produces insulin, but is unable to process or use it. Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnancy when the body is unable to keep up with the insulin demands of a growing fetus.
