Whether you have a family history of diabetes or are exhibiting unusual symptoms, take action right away to get the help you need. 

The 2 Types of Diabetes

Diabetes is all about insulin. This hormone is created by the pancreas to turn glucose (the sugar found in carbohydrates) into the energy your body needs to function. One of the reasons diabetes is often confusing for people is that there are 2 variations of it. Although it is the same disease, there are some significant differences between the 2 types.

Type 1

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. This is a condition where your immune system attacks parts of your body. When the beta cells in your pancreas are damaged, your pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin. This means that you must receive the hormone either through injections or a pump. Type 1 is generally diagnosed in younger patients, but it can manifest in adulthood as well.

Type 2

Type 2 diabetes is generally easier to manage than type 1. It is a condition in which your body can’t respond to insulin. This causes it to overcompensate and try to make more. Unfortunately, this puts a heavy strain on the pancreas and ends up destroying cells. Excess weight is often the cause of this variation as it is harder for a heavier body to correctly process insulin. Fortunately, there are many treatment options available. Medications, weight loss and sometimes insulin are generally effective solutions.
