This is caused by autoimmune reaction, where body is not producing insulin as it needed. This disease can be seen generally in children or young adults.

Type 2 Diabetes:

This is a common type of Diabetes. It occurs in adults. But now due to current lifestyles, it can occur in any age group. Insulin resistance and progressive hyperglycemia-induced beta cell destruction is the main cause of this Diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes:
