Unraveling the Diabetes Spectrum: From Established Types to Emerging Discoveries

"Exploring the Various Types of Diabetes: From Established Variations to Emerging Findings"

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines diabetes as a chronic condition affecting how the body processes food
for energy.
Prediabetes, Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes are well-known types.
However, recently discovered variations like MODY and LADA often go misdiagnosed. Type 1 diabetes involves an autoimmune response,
while Type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance.
Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy.
There's also a potential link between Alzheimer's disease and insulin resistance, known as Type 3 diabetes.
Additionally, researchers have uncovered an intriguing form called "Type 4" diabetes, which is associated with age-related insulin resistance in lean mice.
