Type 1 Diabetes
…is usually diagnosed young in children and young adults. Also called juvenile diabetes, this type is affected by the body (pancreas) not producing any insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps convert your carbohydrates into glucose (energy) for daily needs. In Type 1 diabetes, the immune system attacks the beta cells of pancreas (the ones producing insulin) causing them to be destroyed.
Type 1.5 Diabetes
…is quite similar to Type 1 except that it is a slow-onset of autoimmunity that destroyed the pancreas ability to produce insulin. The pancreas in this type is not completely damaged yet. It is also called LADA or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults because it is mostly seen in adults.
Type 2 Diabetes
…is the most commonly diagnosed because it is considered a lifestyle disease. It is actually a metabolic disorder in which your body cells formed resistance to insulin causing your serum level to spike. Most people do not know that they have this condition until it is too late. The earliest signs include feeling agitated or irritable when skipped a meal or tired after eating and needs caffeine to stimulate themselves. It is also called reactive hypoglycemia in its earliest stage and then metabolic syndrome later when it progressed.
Type 3 Diabetes
…is seen often in older people having Alzheimer’s disease condition. It is due to the brain cells forming resistance to insulin. Insulin is also produced in the brain besides in your pancreas.
