Difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes - development


Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the immune system incorrectly attacks beta cells of the pancreas. Beta cells produce insulin, and as a result, those with Type 1 diabetes become dependent on external insulin as their bodies become incapable of producing insulin.

Type 2 diabetes is multifactorial and is different from T1D in the sense that the body loses its ability to respond to insulin, resulting in what we commonly term as insulin resistance.
