The first type of diabetes is Type 1. There are two types incidentally, Type 1 and Type 2. The Type 1 is sometimes known as Juvenile Diabetes. The location in the body that generates insulin in the body is the pancreas, specifically the beta cells, located in the pancreas. It is when the glucose remains in your blood, instead of getting inside the cells, that the serious problems of diabetes occur. because it oftentimes occurs early in a person’s life. It is caused by the fact that, for some reason, the body is unable to produce a sufficient quantity of insulin. To provide cells (including muscle) with glucose and sustenance that they need, the main function of circulating hormone ‘insulin’ is to move sugars from the blood circulation into these tissues (such as muscle and brain etc). The insufficient insulin level which occurs in Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system, destroying whatever cells are producing insulin (

 

The second type of diabetes (Type 2 diabetes), represents a different metabolic disorder caused by the fact that, like Type 1 diabetes, the body is not able to produce enough (or even use) insulin. This diabetes occurs with the greatest incidence, being approximately 90% of the cases out there. This illness does develop in the short term, but takes a decade or so to develop, and is most commonly seen in the adult population. For this reason, frequent diabetes testing (say every year) is a very good idea! You could be suffering from a low-level type of diabetes (called prediabetes which eventually leads to full blown Type 2 Diabetes and you may not even know it, and if you leave it untreated, it will develop into Type two diabetes, which is the last and most serious form of diabetes. As a final resort, insulin is only given to individuals if initially, alterations in your diet, lifestyle and some weight loss doesn’t work.
