Diabetes is a disease in which the body doesn't make enough insulin or doesn't use insulin as well it should, resulting in high blood glucose levels. Diabetes can cause a number of serious complications including heart disease, kidney failure, blindness and poor blood circulation requiring amputation. While there are no known ways to prevent Type I diabetes, which is generally diagnosed during childhood, Type II diabetes can be prevented or delayed through a healthy lifestyle, including maintaining a healthy weight, eating healthy foods and regular exercise. Type II diabetes accounts for 90 percent or more of all cases.
