Types of Diabetes and its Complications

Over 10% of all people with diabetes have type 1 diabetes. Diabetes will develop at any age, but most frequently occurs in children & adolescents. It is caused by an autoimmune reaction where the body’s defence system attacks the cells that produce insulin. In type 1 diabetes, body produces very little or no insulin, which means that need daily insulin injections to maintain blood glucose levels under control. At present, type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented. Type 2 Diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance, where the body does not fully respond to the insulin. It is because insulin cannot work properly, blood glucose levels will be rising, releasing more insulin. For some people with type 2 diabetes this can exhaust the pancreas, resulting in the body producing less insulin, causing even higher blood sugar levels.
