Type 1 first appears at a young age, and is often called juvenile diabetes. Type 2 generally occurs because of an unhealthy lifestyle. It really depends on how old you are and how the autoimmune response was triggered.

Type 1, or Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM) is typically diagnosed in those under the age of 20, hence the usual laymen's term "juvenile-onset" diabetes. It's characterized by the pancreas' inability to produce insulin, which pushes glucose (sugar cells) out of the blood stream. When it can't do this and sugar builds up in the blood, it's called hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar. Type 1 is usually much more serious, and the child/young adult will have to take insulin shots the rest of their life.

Type 2, or Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM or adult-onset) is usually diagnosed in those who are over 40 and are overweight. In this case, the pancreas DOES produce insulin, but it is defective and kind of just floats around without doing it's job. This also leads to a build up of glucose leading to high blood sugar. Type 2 can almost be cured by healthy dieting, exercising, and medications.

Normal blood sugar levels are around 70-110. A reading lower than 70 means hypoglycemia, and the person should get shaky, faint, and sweaty. A reading higher than 110 means there is too much glucose in the blood. Both types involved inadequately working insulin cells.

it depends on the symptoms. if you have lost weight and feel sick when you havent had anything to eat for a while then it is more than likely type 1. people are born with type 1, you dont get it in the middle of your life. type 2 is cause by excessive weight gain. type 2 diabetes is the one most frequently associated with obese people


ReptiMan
well if you have diabetes the test results would have said type 1 or type 2


laugh.louder
You go to a doctor and I'm sure that he or she would be smart enough to tell you that.
