[Causes of diabetes]
Diabetes is divided into type 1 and type 2, and type 1 diabetes, also called 'juvenile diabetes', is a disease that occurs due to the inability to produce insulin at all. Type 2 diabetes mellitus, which is relatively deficient in insulin, is characterized by insulin resistance (the inability of cells to effectively burn glucose due to a lack of insulin function that lowers blood sugar). In type 2 diabetes, environmental factors such as high calorie, high fat, high protein diet, lack of exercise, and stress seem to play a major role in Westernization of diet. It can also be caused by medications.
