TYPE 1 DIABETES.
Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile
diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a
chronic condition in which the pancreas
produces little or no insulin. Insulin is a
hormone needed to allow sugar (glucose) to
enter cells to produce energy.
Different factors, including genetics and some
viruses, may contribute to type 1 diabetes.
Although type 1 diabetes usually appears
during childhood or adolescence, it can
develop in adults.
The exact cause of type 1 diabetes is unknown.
Usually, the body's own immune system —
which normally fights harmful bacteria and
viruses — mistakenly destroys the insulin-
producing (islet, or islets of Langerhans) cells
in the pancreas. Other possible causes include:
TYPE 2 DIABETES.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose) — an important source of fuel for your body.
With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels.
Type 2 diabetes used to be known as adult-onset diabetes, but today more children are being diagnosed with the disorder, probably due to the rise in childhood obesity.
Type 2 diabetes develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or when the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin.
Exactly why this happens is unknown, although genetics and environmental factors, such as being overweight and inactive, seem to be contributing factors.
