A type 1 Diabetic person has no insulin at all because the body's immune system destroys the cells needed to produce insulin. Type 1 Diabetes is often started in childhood and young adults. Type 1 Diabetes can’t be prevented. Incidents of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) occur in Type 1 Diabetics, whereas Type 2 Diabetics usually do not have incidents of low blood sugar. Unless type 2 Diabetics take insulin or certain diabetes medications, type 2 Diabetics rarely experience low blood sugar.
Type 2 diabetics do not have enough insulin or cannot use the insulin that they have. The body is not able to use insulin in the correct way with Type 2 Diabetes. The onset of Type 2 Diabetes usually occurs in adults, however it can also occur at any age. The onset of type 2 Diabetes can be stopped by practicing a healthy lifestyle.
