What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes? Which one is curable and which one is incurable?.

What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes? Which one is curable and which one is incurable?.
Type 1 diabetes is the kind in which the body cannot produce insulin hormone at all and hence daily insulin injections are needed lifelong to control sugar. Missing injections can prove fatal. Type 2 diabetes is the more common form which is mainly due to unhealthy lifestyles in genetically prone people. Lifestyle changes are the mainstay of treatment in this form and the person can be controlled for quite a long duration with tablets. Insulin becomes necessary after the tablets do not work well, which is usually after many years of diagnosis. Neither form is curable, it can only be controlled with medicines.

A person becoming "hyper and angry" has no direct relationship to either high blood pressure or thyroid related disease. It is just the nature of the person. Only thing one has to do is make him/her learn to relax and avoid reacting immediately. If she is on treatment for hypothyroidism then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Similarly BP should be maintained 120 -130 / 70 - 80 mm Hg. Since no current readings have been mentioned, the above levels are suggested. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both as in t2 dm or total absence of insulin as in t1 dm. T1 is usually seen in younger age, starting with early childhood on wards. Here the only treatment is insulin injections, there is no other option. Plus diet control and exercise. In t2 there are a number of drugs used apart from insulin injections, plus the modified life style. The exact" solution" will depend upon type of diabets one has. Whatever may be the option it will have to be continued for life time.
