What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition that arises either the pancreas does not produce the required quantity of insulin or the body cannot utilize produced insulin effectively. Insulin is an important hormone that regulates blood sugar. 

Most people know diabetes has 2 major types, Type 1 and Type 2 but the difference between them is not known to many. Even though the symptoms of both are the same or nearly the same they have so many differences like what causes them, who will affect and how to control and manage them. 

Type 1 affects 8% of all diabetic patients while about 90% of patients are Type 2 diabetic i.e Type 2 diabetes is more common than type 1 diabetes. Both are chronic and serious conditions. Because having high glucose can cause many health complications irrespective of type, both types need a proper diagnosis to manage them effectively.

Major differences between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes:

1. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease that stops the pancreas to produce enough insulin due to genetic factors and environmental factors. 

Type 2 Diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to utilizing insulin produced and it can occur due to a family history of type 2 diabetes and lifestyle factors.

2. Type 1 Diabetes mostly happens to children or people aged below 40. As it doesn’t affect due to lifestyle, changes made to lifestyle can’t affect the development of disease.

Type 2 Diabetes can occur due to age factors, poor lifestyle like improper diet, physical inactivity and having obesity, family history, and other environmental factors.

3. Symptoms of type 1 diabetes start appearing very quickly whereas symptoms of Type 2 diabetes appear more slowly.

4. To manage type 1 diabetes, the patient must use insulin therapy along with effective homeopathy treatment which controls symptoms. Whereas type 2 diabetes needs proper diet and exercise along with homeopathy medication and sometimes it also needs insulin therapy based on sugar levels in the blood of the patient.
