Whats worse? Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes?

type 1 is the worst. 2 is the most common.

type 1 is more serious,type 2 tends to be more brought on by poor diet and being overweight and usually you can control type 2 with tablets as type 1 tends to be more a hereditory complaint and is generally treated with injections...if you have type 2 you can greatley help yourself by losing weight and controling what you eat,it`s not unheard of for people to totally turn this around with the control of diet etc...

being type 2 isnt fun. my blood sugar is regulated by medication and diet and exercise. if my blood sugar goes high there isnt much i can do. with a type 1 they can take injections to lower there blood sugar. so im not really sure which would be worse. AND NOT ALL type 2 are overweight when they become diabetic. i started to put on weight when i became diabetic.

They each have their problems. Type 1 is the more serious because blood glucose (BG) can fluctuate so rapidly and it's not uncommon to end up in the hospital from too low or too high BG. The good news is Type 1's are usually more tightly regulated than Type 2's, monitor their BG's several times a day, and are forced to be more disciplined about diet and exercise, which in some cases results in fewer complications. Type 2's, because they can "get by" on elevated but not scary BG's, often ignore managing their disease as long as they feel OK. They often don't check their BG on a regular basis and this can lead to complications. Both versions are deadly, but a well-controlled Type 2 has a much better chance at a long, healthy life.

From expirience in being a type 1 diabetic for 6 years, my dad being a type 2, i'd say type one is the worst.

Depending on the severity of your condition, you may have to take up to 6 shots a day (i myself take 3-4). Most Type 2s only take pills, and don't inject themselves.
Though, you can get insulin pumps, which are supposed to greatly help regulate your sugar, you have a needle in you at all times (i myself don't use one).

My dad never tests his sugar. I must test mine 4-5 times a day (others may test even more). Though there have been improved ways of getting blood other than fingertips (palms, toes and wrists), it still means having to poke a needle SOMEWHERE frequently throughout the day.

You have very poor bladder control with Type One diabetis, and it is difficult to regulate for some people. You can only eat certain times a day, due to insulin regulaton. Type 2s take a few pills, and that covers them all day.

There are constant dark rings below one's eyes, sometimes being darker or lighter depending on the sugar level. (higher=darker)

Hope that helped.

Type 1 is worst. Type 2 is more common.There are actually many different kinds of diabetes. All types of diabetes involve inadequate beta cell function, but some also involve problems with the body respond­ing less effectively to insulin (this is known as insulin resistance).
In type 1 diabetes (formerly referred to as juvenile onset diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus), a person’s immune system attacks its own beta cells and destroys them. This is known as autoimmune injury. To control the ele­vated glucose levels, a person with this kind of diabetes has to be treated with insulin injections. Most people with this kind of diabetes are thin.

Type 2 diabetes (formerly called adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus) is the most common type of diabetes. If you have type 2 dia­betes, you are insulin resistant, which means you need more insulin to lower your blood glucose levels. You also have some beta cell loss in your pancreas, but not to the same extent as in type 1 diabetes. Most of the people with this kind of diabetes are overweight or obese.
So Type 1 is worst. Type 2 is more common.
