- Type I: Insulin dependent. Found in normal and maybe underweight people, and rotted in a disease that impairs normal glucose management.
- -Lack of insulin= blood sugar not optimally delivered into cells (particularly muscle and fat) resulting in Hyperglycemia (high levels of blood sugar) Hypoglycemia is a drop in blood sugar
Type II: Non insulin dependent. Associated with obesity (particularly abdominal). They produce enough insulin, but their cells are resistant to the insulin (cells allow insulin to bring adequate blood sugar into cell) =Results in hyperglycemia
