As you may know, diabetes is characterised by abnormal levels of sugar and glucose in the blood. Type I Diabetes, also known as Juvenile onset diabetes, accounts for only 10% of all cases. Type II Diabetes affects as much as 90% of all diabetic suffers and although the onset can partially be blamed on genetics in some cases, most of the time it is causes by being overweight, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, obesity and poor diet choices.
