What are the different types of diabetes?
~Type 1 & Type 2~
Type 2 diabetes is the more common of the two. It has to do with the body not using our insulin properly. Our pancreas will produce extra insulin to make up for the loss at first, but as time goes on, it cannot keep up. This is called "Insulin resistance".
Type 1 diabetes is way more uncommon than type 2. Only 5% of people who have diabetes, have type 1. This type has usually only been diagnosed for children and young adults. Type 1 involves our body not producing any insulin. Instead of making insulin, our body breaks down sugars and starches into glucose, which is used for energy.
