Type 1 diabetes

which is an autoimmune disease resulting from the progressive and selective destruction of insulin producing beta cells by autoimmune cells and

Type 2 diabetes

which is responsible for about 90% of all diabetes cases and is caused by a combination of insulin resistance and insufficient insulin secretion.
