An A to Z glossary of disabilities

Diabetes can be broken down into two…Type 1 – When the pancreas isn’t producing any insulin and the more common form…Type 2 – The pancreas is producing insulin, but it’s not enough or the cells aren’t reacting to it. The condition materialises when a person’s blood level becomes too high, most of us have a high blood level although it isn’t enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Around 90% of adults have type 2 although it’s not unlikely for the condition to develop into type 1 requiring insulin injections to keep the sugar levels at bay. Statistics show around five million people across the UK will be diabetic by 2025.
