What’s the Difference Between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes?

ayurvedic treatment of diabetes

What is diabetes?

A type of chronic disease that is occurred when the pancreas is not able to make insulin or when the body is not able to make proper use of insulin which results in the increase of blood sugar. This causes sugar to accumulate in the blood. Diabetes can lead to many health problems like heart disease, blindness, kidney failure and lower extremity amputations.

Types of diabetes:

There are mainly three types of diabetes:

  • Type 1- In this type of diabetes the insulin produced by the pancreas is either very low or no insulin is produced by the pancreas. This happens when the person’s own immune system destroys the cells in the pancreas known as BETA cells, cells that make insulin. There is one more type of diabetes found which is very much similar to Type 1 diabetes and it is known as secondary diabetes, in which the immune system is not destroying the BETA cells but they are either wiped out by some disease or due to any injury to the pancreas. In this type of diabetes, the patient has to depend on the insulin injection to lower down the blood sugar.
  • Type 2- In this type of diabetes the pancreas is producing the insulin but it is not bemused efficiently by the cells. The cells in this type of diabetes become insensitive to the insulin which results in the increase of blood sugar level. In this type of diabetes the patient can take precautionary measures like doing dieting, exercise or oral drugs to keep this in track.
  • Gestational- This type of diabetes is often occurred when a women gets pregnant in which her blood sugar levels are high. This type of diabetes often goes away after the delivery of the lady and taking few precautionary measures. If not taken care at an early stage it may lead to Type 2 diabetes.
