  • Type 2 diabetes: Develops when your body fails to respond to the insulin produced by the pancreas due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
  • Gestational diabetes: You can have diabetes as a result of hormonal changes during pregnancy. Your blood sugar will rise due to insulin sensitivity of your body and reduce.
