Types of Diabetes

Type 1

An autoimmune reaction which stops your body from making insulin. Approximately 5-10% of the people who have diabetes have type 1. It’s usually diagnosed in children, teens, and young adults. You’ll need to take insulin every day to survive. Good news is that this kind of diabetes is rare

Type 2

Excluding all causes of hyperglycemia and type 1 diabetes, This a condition associated with resistance to action of insulin followed by impairment of more than 50% pancreatic b-cells function thus leading to insulin deficiency. This is the most common and deadly type of diabetes.


This develops in pregnant women who have never had diabetes. If you have this diabetes, your baby could be at higher risk for health problems. This diabetes usually goes away after your baby is born. Your baby is more likely to have obesity as a child or teen and develop type 2.
