What Is The Difference Between Type 1 Diabetes
And Type 2 Diabetes?
  • People who dont have diabetes, and even who are
    suffering from diabetes often get confused
    between Type 1 and Type 2 of diabetes. Although,
    both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are portrayed by
    having higher than usual glucose levels, the
    reason and occurrence of the complications or
    symptoms are distinctive.

  • Are You Confused Over Which Type Of Diabetes Is
    Affecting You?
  • It's not generally clear what type of diabetes is
    affecting a person, regardless of what many
    individuals think. For example, people usually
    assume that individuals with type 2 diabetes will
    have excess amount of weight and wont infuse
    insulin, while individuals with type 1 will be
    underweight. However, these assumptions simply
    aren't generally valid.

  • On a similar note, in some cases individuals with
    type 1 diabetes will be overweight. Since the two
    types of diabetes can be so different and
    erratic, it's regularly hard to know the kind of
    diabetes a person has. It's not good to expect
    that an overweight individual with high blood
    glucose levels has type 2 diabetes, due to the
    fact that the cause behind this condition may in
    reality be attributable to diabetes type 1.

    encompasses a diabetes diagnosis, there are a
    couple of normal qualities of each type of
  • Take note that these distinctions depend on
    generalisations, and special cases are frequent.
    For example, the assumptions of type 1 arent
    entirely valid, and many cases are analysed in
    adulthood. Diabetes in Australia has become quite
    common and the numbers of cases are rising at a
    quick rate.

  • Heres a chart that summarises a few differences
    between diabetes type 1 and type 2. However, for
    more information about diabetes you need visit
