Understanding Diabetes: Unraveling the Complexities of Type 1 and Type 2

The Intricacies of Diabetes

Diabetes is a complex and often misunderstood condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a chronic disease characterized by high blood sugar levels, resulting from the body’s inability to produce or effectively use insulin. There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes, also known as juvenile diabetes, typically develops in childhood or adolescence. It occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. As a result, individuals with Type 1 diabetes require lifelong insulin therapy to survive.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, accounting for approximately 90% of all cases. It occurs when the body becomes resistant to the effects of insulin or fails to produce enough insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes is often associated with lifestyle factors such as obesity, poor diet, and lack of physical activity.
