I'm just asking for some infomation cause I seem to be confused.
I know that a type 1 diabetic becomes one b/c the immune system destroys the beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin.
I know that a type 2 diabetic is someone who CAN produce insulin and have beta cells, but either with insufficient quantities, or the body cells are unresponsive to the insulin present - and I know that in some cases it's a combination of both.
I also know that pre-diabetics have blood sugar levels higher than normal but not enough to be fully diagnosed as "diabetic," in the same fashion that type 2 works.
So what's type 1.5?
