Types of Diabetes

Diabetes is of two types –

  • Type 1
  • And Type 2

Type 1 diabetes is caused due to an auto-immune reaction of the body, where the cells that produce insulin are wrongly attacked by our body’s immune system. Only 10% of all people are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is what the major concern is. Close to 90% of all people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, where their body cannot respond to insulin.
