(Our group wrote this article together about diabetes.)

Diabetes is a sickness where your pancreas isn’t working. Usually the function of the pancreas is to make insulin. Insulin is needed as a key to open the body cells so glucose can be absorbed. Glucose is needed for essential as it gives body energy

There are 2 types of diabetes type l and type 2. Type 1 is where the pancreas is not working. It is not working.  It is not making enough insulin. Usually people get Type 1 diabetes when they are young. They have to inject insulin every day.

In Type 2 diabetes the pancreas makes insulin but the insulin doesn't work properly. It doesn't open the door to the body to let glucose go in. People often get Type 2 diabetes when they are adults. You are more likely to get it if someone in your family has it, if you are overweight, if you eat too much sugar and if you don’t exercise.
