Type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune condition in which the immune system is activated to destroy the cells in the pancreas which produce insulin. Type 1 diabetes is not linked to modifiable lifestyle factors and cannot be prevented.

Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition in which the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin and/or gradually loses the capacity to produce enough insulin in the pancreas. Type 2 diabetes is associated with modifiable lifestyle risk factors. It also has strong genetic and family related risk factors.

Complications of diabetes

People with diabetes are vulnerable to a variety of complications over time that lead to a poor quality of life and increased early mortality.
