There are many types of diabetes. The main two types are type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes and they are two totally different conditions. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition whereas type 2 diabetes can be considered an intolerance to sugar, or insulin resistance.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the pancreas cannot produce insulin. There are over 330,000 people with type 1 diabetes in the UK. Learn more about blood glucose management and HbA1c. Read CGM and blood glucose meter guides.
There are four medically accepted methods of placing type 2 diabetes into remission. Speak to other people in the low calorie community, low carb community and ketogenic community. Diabetes.co.uk has been instrumental in the adoption of the lower carbohydrate approach in primary care.
Reducing sugar has been demonstrated to help place type 2 diabetes and prediabetes into remission. Reduction in sugar has been demonstrated to help people with type 1 diabetes also.
