Diabetes is a common chronic illness that puts a lot of stress on a person's immune system. Type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes are the three subtypes of the disease. The auto-immune destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas results in Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes can be distinguished using auto-antibody testing and the C-peptide test. 10% of people with diabetes have diabetes type 1. A metabolic disorder called diabetes mellitus type 2 is characterised by insulin resistance and a shortage of insulin.
