Most people with Diabetes have Type 2. It tends to happen in middle age and is often treated with drugs and not insulin although insulin may also be added to the treatment. In Diabetes the fundamental problem is with how glucose (sugar) is handled in the body. Type 2 Diabetes is sensitive to weight loss. That is, if you lose some weight by dieting you have a good chance to get better control of your diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes seems to be due to "insulin resistance". This means that even if your body's pancreas is producing enough insulin the insulin doesn't seem to have the desired effect in sugar control. Type 1 Diabetes is less common, tends to appear earlier and needs insulin.
