Diabetes Screenings FAQs
- Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune reaction that destroys beta cells in the pancreas, preventing it from producing insulin.
- Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin or when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin.
The treatment for diabetes is different depending on how severe it is or what type of diabetes you have. Type 1 diabetes usually requires insulin injections or an insulin pump and close monitoring of blood glucose levels by a healthcare professional. Type 2 diabetes usually can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications like metformin (Glucophage).
Diabetes is a condition in which the body cannot produce or use insulin well enough. People with diabetes have high blood sugar levels because they can’t break down sugars, starches, and other foods. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not make any insulin at all, and type 2 diabetes usually occurs when the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the cells do not react to it correctly.
