Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high.

Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy.

You are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes if you are age 45 or older, have a family history of diabetes, or are overweight.

Physical inactivity, race, and certain health problems such as high blood pressure also affect your chance of developing type 2 diabetes.

You are also more likely to develop type 2 diabetes if you have prediabetes or had gestational diabetes when you were pregnant.
