    1)Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.

    the differences:

    Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults.

    Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.

    In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin.In type 2 diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin.

    the similarties :

    Having type 1 and type 2 diabetes increase your risk for many serious complications. Some complications of type 1 diabetes include: heart disease (cardiovascular disease), blindness (retinopathy), nerve damage (neuropathy), and kidney damage (nephropathy).

    Both of them are related to insulin.
