The term "diabetes" refers to a blood glucose
level (BGL) of 126 mg/dl or higher. That's it. It's a symptom, not a disease.
The conditions that underlie high BGLs are the diseases. Most cases are type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. They both cause high BGLs but they're different diseases with different characteristics and happen for different reasons.
Neither disease is curable or preventable.
