Which type of Diabetes do you have?

Posted by John Harris on Mon, Jun 19, 2006 @ 12:05 PM

Diabetes is caused by a problem with the body's ability to use insulin.

In Type 1 diabetes, the body produces little or no insulin.

In Type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and the other types of diabetes, the body does not produce enough insulin or cannot use the insulin it produces (this is called "insulin resistance").
