Which of these sentences would best replace the bold sentence in the attached passage?

“Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes as it is generally known, is a disease affecting nearly four million people in the United States. This disease occurs either when the pancreas stops producing enough insulin for the body, known as type 1 diabetes, or when the body cannot properly deal with the insulin produced, called type 2. 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.”
