    But type 2 diabetes is often too cavalierly treated both by the patients themselves, but also by many docs, so many are chronically badly controlled, leading to catastrophic complications like heart attack, stroke, limb amputation, blindness, kidney failure, neuropathy etc. Many don’t/won’t understand that they need not smoke, have optimal blood pressure and serum lipid control, and be frequently examined for eye complications to prevent blindness.

    “Dangerous” is a very loaded word. Both types of diabetes have their risks. Only about 5% of individuals with diabetes have been diagnosed with type 1. The other 95% have type 2. In a previous post on diabetes, I pointed out that type 1 and type 2 are not single diseases but are a group of diseases under these convenient umbrellas.
    Type 1 individual no longer produce insulin. This can happen from injury to the pancreas, disease and iatrogenic causes. Iatrogenic means, no one really knows why they got type 1. Viral infections are suspected but no causality has been found. Their body equilibrium is maintained by balancing their intake of injectable insulin, food and exercise. Illness and stress are also factors. Because they produce no insulin disruptions in their balance can be devastating. Control is much better now, but lack of control over blood sugars caused side effects and complications for many type 1 diabetics. It is easier for a type 1 to have high and to have low blood sugars if they don’t maintain tight control of diet, exercise and insulin.
    Type 2 diabetics still produce insulin but their body seems to be unable to use the insulin ‘normally’ or ‘efficiently’. Obesity has been cited in a lot of posts. Obesity increases the number of cells that the insulin has to interact with to shuttle sugar molecules from the blood stream into the cells. More acreage to cover, less efficient use of the limited supplies of insulin. But this alone doesn’t ‘cause’ diabetes, it is a complicating factor.
    A type 2 diabetic has a wide range of drugs to help improve their personal production of insulin as well as to increase the sensitivity of their cells to the insulin they do have. They can also be put on insulin. I have serious complications with the diabetic drugs ranging from mild headaches that last forever and going all the way to liver rebellion. Not a pretty site, so I have been on insulin since the age of 27, I’m now 59.
    A type 2 diabetic is less prone to low blood sugars and more prone to high blood sugars. They are also more at risk for diabetic complications, not because their disease is more severe, but because they generally live longer than Type 1 diabetics, though that gap is rapidly closing thanks to research and treatment advances.
    As to being dangerous: both diseases have their danger. You can think of type 1 as a quick and angry type of danger and type 2 ans a sneaking, creeping danger.
