Diabetes is a chronic disease characterized by hyperglycemia. There are two main types: the first is a relatively rare form (about 20 percent of the patients) in which the patients must inject insulin subcutaneously at least once a day. The second one is almost always observed in overweight adults whose treatment usually consists of losing weight through caloric restriction.
