Type 1 Diabetes
is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease.
in Type 1 Diabetes,
the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the sugars and starches you eat into a simple sugar called glucose, which it uses for energy.
is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body.
Type 2 Diabetes,
prevents your body from properly producing insulin. This is called insulin resistance.
with Type 2
at first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it can't keep up and can't make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.
