Type I diabetes is where the body does not produce any insulin, so insulin is the only treatment choice. Injected insulin acts similar to endogenous insulin to lower blood glucose levels.
Type 2 Diabetes is first treated with oral antidiabetic medicines. These medicines, either makes the pancreas produce more insulin, helps decrease insulin requirements by the body or reduces gluconeogenesis by the liver. If normoglycemia is not achieved with oral medicines then insulin can be added to the therapy.
