Types one diabetes is usually a genetic condition developed as an early child.
It is an insulin dependent diabetes.
When a person suffers type on diabetes the pancreas looses the ability to produce insulin and therefore the person must inject insulin manually into their body regularly in order to stay alive, either by pump or insulin injections.
Type two diabetes frequently occurs later in life (often people aged 30 and over).
Again, the pancreas is not producing insulin for the body’s blood sugar levels. It can be prevented or controlled by a healthy lifestyle such as eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly to lose weight.
