Diabetes in both types are very dangerous. Type 1 is juvenile diabetes. It starts during childhood and is usually insulin dependent immediately. Type 2 diabetes is adult on set. This can be controlled by pills or insulin depending on the severity. Usually people start off taking pills to control type 2 and then are moved to insulin as it progresses. If a diabetic does not eat properly or does extranious exercise their blood sugars will drop causing them to have to eat some kind of sweets or carbohydrate to increase their sugar level.
