Diabetes & Other Endocrine Disorders

Overview

In the U.S., 5% of people have Type 1 diabetes, which starts in children and young adults. In type 1 diabetes the body does not produce insulin, which converts sugar, starches and food into energy.

Type 2 diabetes is the more common type of diabetes in the U.S., with 29.1 million people (9.3%) who have this disease. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not make enough insulin and the body has higher than normal blood glucose levels. Men are at a higher risk of developing diabetes than women.
