The body uses a hormone made by the pancreas, called insulin, to break down sugar in the blood. In the case of type 1 diabetes, the pancreas stops producing insulin altogether. In type 2 diabetes, the body cannot produce enough insulin to handle all the sugar in the body. Patients with an impaired glucose tolerance are considered pre-diabetic and should take action before type 2 diabetes takes hold.
