Type-1 diabetes is an auto immune disease. If the immune system is weak then patient gets effect with insulin dependent diabetes.
Immune system should be strong to which protect from bacteria and viruses instead it attack the pancreas, and destroys the beta cells which produce insulin, which result in glucose get produce in the blood and type-1 diabetes develops.
Scientists detected a virus infection is cause of destruction of beta cells. Recent researches indicate this destruction takes about 7 years for this destruction. Nearly 80 percent of beta cells get destroyed then signs of diabetes occur.

When the blood test shows the high blood-glucose levels or urine test shows the presence of sugar then type-2 diabetes patient realise it. This type of patient insulin is in normal level but the body cells refuse to accept insulin, and sugar stays in the blood stream which is known as insulin resistant state.
Fatty tissues and Excess weight seem to be one of the reasons for type-2 diabetes. Maximum cases of type-2 diabetes people are overweight.
