There are 2 types of Diabetes.
Type 1 or Insulin dependent and occasionally still referred to as Juvenile Diabetes.
And Type 2 or non-insulin dependent
Type 1 generally is hereditary and comes about at a very young age, but there are more and more cases being diagnosed with no genetic link. Experts are thinking it is caused by an auto-immune reaction in your body. For example, my Husband got really really sick at age 22. 4 months later he was diagnosed with Diabetes. It was later decided it must be an autoimmunity complication from his previous illness because he has no diabetes in his family history and he was not a child. (obviously)
Type 2 is generally the one we like to think of as the "fat people" kind (no offense, I'm overweight too). Risk factors for this type include being over weight, eating unhealthy foods, leading a sedentary lifestyle, etc.
