The Different Types Of Diabetes

There are 6 different types of diabetes, the most common of which is type 2, which affects about 90% of all diabetic cases.

Type 1 diabetes affects around 5% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. 2-10% of pregnant women will have gestational diabetes.

Mody diabetes is rare and about 1-2% of diabetics have this form of the disease.

Lada Diabetes accounts for 5-10% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. It’s believed that more than 50% of non-obesity-related Type 2 diabetes diagnoses may actually be LADA.

NDM is a monogenic form of diabetes that occurs in the first 6 to 12 months of life. NDM is a rare condition accounting for up to 1 in 400,000 infants in the United States.

There is also a condition called Pre-Diabetes, this is when a person as slightly higher blood sugar levels than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as a diabetic. Pre-diabetes affects around 84 million Americans, many of which don’t even know they have it. You can prevent pre-diabetes from developing into type 2 by simply living a healthier lifestyle.
