How to stand tall against Diabetes without any complications

It is the question that almost everyone with a serious illness asks at some point: Why me? What did I do to deserve this? Was it my fault? Or is someone else to blame?

When it comes to diabetes, there's no real answer yet. Yes, science has begun to uncover the roots of this disease, unearthing a complex interplay of genes and environment—and a lot more unanswered questions. Meanwhile, there's plenty of misinformation to go around. (How often have you had to explain that diabetes doesn't happen because someone "ate too much"?)

Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are on the rise, with an estimated 24 million cases in the United States and 220 million worldwide. Understanding the causes of diabetes may stem its growth and help those already living with the disease day after day.

Diabetes can be classified into 3 types:

Type 1 Diabetes: Also known as juvenile-onset diabetes, it  is caused by lack of insulin in the body. This is a genetic disorder.

Type 2 Diabetes: It is a more common type of diabetes, mainly triggered by lifestyle factors like unhealthy eating, sedentary lifestyle, stress, etc.
