Types of Diabetes Interview With Angie Placeres |

Angie Placeres, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health South Florida, explains diabetes is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the beta cells that make insulin. Those who get diagnosed with type 1 have to inject insulin for the rest of their life, because they can never make it again.

She says type 2 is more insulin resistance, which means the body is still producing, but not as efficiently as it used to and many times those individuals will take oral medications.
