Diabetes: Type 1 vs. Type 2, Health Channel

Dr. Jorge Busse, Nephrologist with Baptist Health South Florida, explains usually type 1 diabetes affects patients before age 40, and type 2 affects people after 40. He also says type 2 is mostly genetic.

Another difference is that in type 1, the body can no longer produce insulin, and in type 2, the body still produces insulin, but just not enough. It is important to prevent type 2 diabetes, in which being overweight, high blood pressure, and family history are risk factors. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
