Type I diabetes is a lifelong, autoimmune condition caused by a deficiency in insulin and is managed with insulin injections. It tends to be diagnosed at quite a young age, but it isn’t linked with age or being overweight.
Type II diabetes is caused by the body either having a resistance to the insulin that the body is producing and therefore no longer being able to use the body’s insulin efficiently, or when the body, no longer makes enough insulin to regulate sugar levels in the blood.
Type II diabetes can be reversible and factors such as maintaining a healthy weight, eating sensibly and taking exercise regularly can all help towards this.
Pre-diabetes is the name given to the condition which is approaching Type II diabetes. Just as in some cases Type II diabetes can be reversed, the same applies to pre-diabetes, meaning that a person never progresses to a full diabetic state. Knowing of the many complications associated with diabetes, a pre-diabetic status gives you the chance to reverse or at least slow down the progression to diabetes.
