What are the Different Types of Diabetes?
The most common types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.
Type 1 Diabetes
In type 1 diabetes little or no insulin is released by the pancreas. Your immune system attacks and destroys the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. Without insulin glucose, also known as sugar, continues to build up in the bloodstream.
Type 2 Diabetes
The most common form of diabetes is type 2, accounting for 90 to 95 percent of all diabetes cases. You develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even during childhood. However, this type of diabetes occurs most often in middle-aged and older people.
