Good question Ryno.

There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body doesn't produce any insulin. In type 2 diabetes-the most common form of the disease-the body produces insulin but not enough to function properly. Gestational diabetes affects women during pregnancy, usually around their 24th week.

Type 2 is the important one to test for regularly and watch your diet/nutrition.

The most common risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes include being obese or overweight and older than age 45, as well as having high blood pressure, insulin resistance, a sedentary lifestyle, prediabetes (a milder form of diabetes), polycystic ovary syndrome, a history of diabetes during pregnancy, and family members who have the disease.
