The types of diabetes are :
• Diabetes type 1 :
It is commonly seen in children and young adults. Is also called as Juvenile Diabetes. The cells which secrete insulin are located in the pancreas, if this cells stop sufficient production of insulin this leads to type 1 diabetes. Many mutation in genes have been identified as a cause of type 1 Diabetes. Only 5 % of all the diabetic cases are type 1.

It is a major type of diabetes. Elderly people above 45 – 50 yrs age are more prone to this type of Diabetes. The most common underlying mechanism of type 2 Diabetes is insulin resistance and obesity. Initially in type 2 diabetes sufficient quantities of insulin is secreted but the cells doesn’t respond to the insulin and as the time progress the pancreas slowly starts to fail and will not be able to produce sufficient quantities of insulin and may require insulin supplementation.
