  1. Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune disease which affects the person’s ability to make any insulin.

    People with type 2 diabetes do make insulin but it may not be enough, or their bodies cannot use the insulin that is made.

    There is no known cause for type 1 diabetes, but some things can increase a person’s risk for type 2.

    To find out about your risk for type 2 diabetes, take the online CANRISK test.
