Diabetes Type 1:
Diabetes occurs in younger and lean individuals. The beta cells of the pancreas are destroyed and hence the pancreas do not produce an adequate amount of insulin. Hence there is no circulating insulin in the body and such patients need insulin for their survival. Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age though it is most often detected in children. This type of diabetes if not treated may lead to ketoacidosis, coma, or even death.
Diabetes Type 2:
According to WHO classification an obese individual with a higher amount of insulin circulating in his body and having uncontrolled glycaemia has type 2 diabetes. The pancreas produce more and more insulin to have the same effect and because they function more than its capacity they cannot produce enough insulin nor does his body respond adequately to insulin.
The risk factors for developing diabetes are:
- Family history
- Backning on the nap of the neck or the groins which indicate that too much insulin is circulating ineffectively in the body
- Sedentary lifestyles or couch potatoes
- Hypertension or a high blood pressure in childhood than that what is healthy
- High BMI (body mass index)
