Type 1 diabetes results from the body's failure to produce insulin - the hormone that "unlocks" the cells of the body, allowing glucose to enter and fuel them. Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder, resulting from the body's inability to make enough or properly use insulin. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 26 million people in the United States have diabetes and 79 million have pre-diabetes. 1.9 million new cases were diagnosed in 2010.
