With type-1 diabetes the bodies immune system destroys the cells that release insulin and type-2 diabetes the body isn't able to use insulin the right way. This is called insulin resistance. As type 2 diabetes gets worse. The pancreas may make less and less of insulin, this is called insulin deficiency.
