The Type 1 diabetes is a kind of diabetes that appear generally when the person is young: from childhood to adulthood. This type of diabetes need a treatment such as insulin injection or insulin pump. When the pancreas stops producing insulin, the person become insulin-dependent.
Type 1 diabetes is a serious health issue that needs daily treatment.
The Type 2 diabetes affect more people who are in overweighting, in lack of physical activity, and older (generally after 40 years old). The majority of people living with diabetes are with the type 2 (90%). Diet and physical activity can help a lot to balance the diabetes, because the patient is not always insulin-dependent, but needs to be controlled as much as the Type 1 diabetes.
Just like the Type 1, Type 2 diabetes is a serious health issue that needs to be treated, followed, controlled and if it's possible, changing diet and life-style to prevent or delay the disease.
