How common is type 2 diabetes?

In Germany currently suffer from some seven million people in one diabetes, which is treated with medication - the vast majority (over 90 percent) are type 2 diabetics. These probably come up to four million people whose diabetes has not yet been diagnosed. Precise details are not possible, as diabetes is not a notifiable disease. In Germany, there is as yet no nationwide Diabetes Register.

In addition, experts estimate that in Germany more than eleven million people in a preliminary stage of type 2 diabetes are (prediabetes). These people have a high risk of developing in the next few years also have type 2 diabetes.

If type 2 diabetes only in old age?

In the past, type 2 diabetes was often referred to as "adult-onset diabetes". Indeed, primarily ill elderly it. Yet increasingly suffer younger people with type 2 diabetes. The reason is that more and more people are severely overweight at a young age and move only slightly - both considered as the main cause of diabetes type 2. Increasingly, doctors the disease in children and adolescents determined. In the US, of which about a quarter of young diabetes or a precursor. The term "adult-onset diabetes" is thus no longer correct.

The difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. The defense system of your own body destroys the insulin-producing cells located in the pancreas. This leads to a lack of insulin. This hormone removed the sugar from the blood into body cells that need it for energy. Without insulin, the blood sugar level rises therefore rapidly.

Who has type 1 diabetes, has from the outset regular insulin injections to lower his blood sugar level. Often children fall ill (average age eight years). But old people can develop type 1 diabetes. In contrast to type 2 diabetes heredity plays a much smaller role in type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes (see also next chapter: The causes ), however, is a disease in the first few of the lack of insulin is in the foreground. Rather, the body's cells develop resistance to insulin. This means that they respond less and less insulin until finally insensitive (resistant) are. The hormone can no longer infiltrate into the cells the sugar then. Consequently, the blood sugar level rises. Possible causes of insulin resistance are mainly hereditary predisposition, obesity and lack of exercise .
