Diabetes type 1 and diabetes type 2 are serious conditions affecting the body's insulin production and usage. Insulin plays in important part in blood sugar regulation. Type 1 diabetes is a disorder in which the body cannot produce its own insulin in the pancreas. Type 2 diabetes is characterized by the body's inability to use the insulin produced in the pancreas, and is the most common type. Type 2 diabetes is most commonly developed in adulthood and can be managed with diet, exercise, and medications in some cases. Type 1 diabetics often require long-term insulin therapy, and often develops in childhood or teenage years. Learn more about diabetes in the articles below.
