Diabetes comes in two forms—type I diabetes and type II diabetes. Type I is the one that is also known as insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes which still has an unknown cause. Some patients are diagnosed when they go beyond the age of twenty. This type of diabetes is a condition where the pancreas has little or no insulin at all. Type II diabetes is known as the non-insulin dependent diabetes that is seen in adulthood and is brought about by obesity and sedentary living. Being a type II diabetic is a very difficult truth that you have to deal with every single day of your life. This involves exerting a huge amount of effort to deal with everyday with proper diet, exercise, and of course, prescribed medications. If you cooperate with your doctor and follow the routine that is designed for you, then you will surely manage your condition better.
