A third form of diabetes is gestational diabetes, which occurs in pregnant women. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the disease, making up 90% of diabetics. This type is largely related to unhealthy lifestyles and can be reversed with proper diet and exercise. Type 1 diabetes often presents itself during childhood. Gestational diabetes often goes away after the pregnancy has concluded.
