    Type 1 diabetes is caused by immune system malfunctions thought to be either inherited, brought on by certain illness caused by some viruses, or due to some combination of the two. In any case, it's caused by the immune system attacking the cells that make insulin, resulting in a lack of sufficient insulin. It might be able to be prevented with gene therapy in the future, but for now, there's no known way of preventing it, only of reducing its effects and severity with diet, exercise, and medication. Vaccination may prevent serious infections with viruses that may trigger an autoimmune reaction or turn on a type 1 diabetes gene, but too little is yet known about the relationship between viral infection and type 1 diabetes to be certain.

    Type 2 diabetes is an entirely different phenomenon, in which the body still produces plenty of insulin but becomes unable to use it properly. It can often be prevented with diet and exercise.

      Please note the word 'plenty' was a poor word choice because it could be taken to mean enough. I meant to say the body produces normal amounts of insulin but becomes unable to use it properly. It's a little like suffering from thirst in the ocean.

    Kylyssa is spot-on about Type 1. However she also wrote:
    "Type 2 diabetes is an entirely different phenomenon, in which the body still produces plenty of insulin but becomes unable to use it properly. It can often be prevented with diet and exercise."
    Plenty of insulin in frank Type 2 Diabetes? Not really. In UNTREATED pre-diabetes, insulin production increases, because of decreased insulin receptor sensitivity. Eventually, max production is inadequate, and insulin injections  are necessary.
    These days, metformin is an important anti-diabetic medication. It can delay the need for insulin injections.
    And yes, optimized diet and exercise can DELAY the onset. And they can decrease the amount of injected insulin that's necessary for survival.

    In the long run, high levels of insulin contribute to complications of diabetes. That's why moderate aerobic exercise, or anything else you can do to decrease your injected insulin requirement, will give you a better quality of life.

      I could have worded that better and 'plenty' was a bad word choice. I should have said that the body still makes a normal amount of insulin, it stops being able to use the insulin it has efficiently, requiring much more insulin to do the same job.

    Diabetes is an autoimmune disease caused by chronic inflammation. By following an anti-inflammatory diet, you can prevent and even reverse the symptoms of diabetes: http://www.holistic-healing-information … ation.html

    Those I know with Type 1 diabetes showed poor choice of food in their diet and some had a tendency to inherit the disease. I am sure this is not the whole story from scanning the answers here. However, diet and exercise seem to be part of the answer to the question. Some patients with the disease did not watch what they ate but just adjusted their insulin, accordingly. One person almost died from drinking too much alcohol which is detrimental to Type 1 Diabetes and many other diseases.
