Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. There are two main types of diabetes, referred to as type 1 and type 2, with 90% of people who have diabetes having type 2. Type 2 diabetes usually affects people over the age of 40.

While the exact cause of type 2 diabetes is not fully understood, factors such as obesity and being overweight can contribute. Taking measures to achieve or maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle can help prevent the disease.
