the most common for, of diabetes affecting 90% -95% of the 18.2million people with diabetes.unlike people with type 1 diabetes people with type 2 diabetes produce insulin however their insulin their pancreas secreates is either not enoughor the body is unable to recognize the insulin and use it properly. this is called insulin resistance when there isnt enough insulin or the insulin isnt being used as it should be.glucose [sugar]cant get into the bodys cellswhen glucose builds up the bloodinstead of going into cellsthe bodys cells sare not able to function properlyother problems asscociated with the buildup of glucose in in the blood include.dehydrytion the build up of sugarcan cause an increase in urination.[to try to clear the sugar from the
body.]when the kidneys loose the glucose through the urine a large amount of water is also lost.causing dehydration.hyperosmolar non ketotic diabetic coma.when a person with type 2 diabetes becomes severly dehydrated and is not able to drink enough fluids to make up for the fluid loss they may develop this life threating complication.damage to the body over time, the high glucose levelsin the blood may damagethe nerves and small blood vessels of the eyes-kidneys and heart,and predispose a person to atherosclerosis [hardening]of the larghe arteries that can cause heartattack and stroke.this is just a little of the difference in these two types of diabetes i shou;ld know im a diabetic with type 2 diabetes.if you want to know more about these two types of diabetes look in the source link below for the links to the website . i hope this helps you god bless you

Diabetes is a disease in which the white blood cells that usually attack germs,viruses,etc. turn around and attack the insulin producing beta cells of the pancreas. In type 1 the beta cells will eventually be killed of and your body will produce no insulin, it is also known as insulin dependent diabetes, for a short period after diagnosis the cells that haven't been destroyed yet will produce some insulin, this period is called the honeymoon, no one knows how long it will last, some people have it for days others for years. With type 2 those beta cells are destroyed very slowly and in some cases they can be strengthened and even regrow, regrowth is uncommon but controlling it with diet and exercise for many years isn't rare, unfortunately the beta cells while inevitably all die and at some point an insulin pump or injections will be needed as the only source of insulin

Type one diabetes means that you need to have supplementary insulin to maintain your blood sugar... type two usually can be controlled by watching your sugar intake

type 1--juvenile diabetes. Body does not produce enough insulin. Diagnosed in little kids and old people

type 2--high levels of sugar in the blood. Body doesnt respond to insulin correctly. More Commen in African Americans, Latin Americans and the elderly and so on.

One is insulin dependent, the other isn't and can be controlled with diet, exercise etc etc. Type I also called IDDM (Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus), is the most severe.

In the past, type I diabetes was called juvenile diabetes because doctors thought that it would strike only children or young adults. Doctors now know that people of any age can develop type I diabetes, although the majority of cases are discovered in people under 20 years of age.

Type II - NIDDM (Non Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) - affects 90-95% of all North American cases. About 20% of the population over the age of 65 has diabetes mellitus type 2. Type 2 is initially treated by adjustment in diet and exercise, and by weight loss, especially in obese patients.

Type one Diabetes is usually an auto-immune disorder where, for some reason, your immune system attacks an organ in your body. In this case, the pancreas. In Type One the pancreas stops working completely and the person has to start taking insulin injections. This can occur in anyone no matter what size but usually doesn't occur after about age 30. There is no cure for Type One except to take insulin. Type Two usually occurs in people that are overweight or elderly and can usually be managed with pills and sometimes the pills may not even be needed with diet and exercises.
