My cousin is an insulin dependent diabetic & she had a very rough pregnany & the baby was premature. He had to have a few surgeries after birth also. But now he is a healthy 16 month old baby. She on the other hand now has liver & stomach cancer. Any prayers is much needed. They only gave her 6 months.

What is the difference between a Type-1 diabetic and an insulin-dependent diabetic?

Type-1 diabetics are generally insulin-dependent, but not all insulin-dependent diabetics are type-1. Type-1 refers to how the patient contracted diabetes -- by having their pancreatic beta cells stop producing insulin, usually due to an autoimmune disorder. Type-2 diabetics became diabetic through a combination of genetic and lifestyle problems that reduced insulin production and/or increased insulin resistance. Type-2 diabetics usually begin treatment with diet changes and oral medications that increase insulin production or reduce resistance, rather than taking injections of actual insulin. But a Type-2 diabetic may become insulin-dependent over time, if treatment isn't effective. The high blood sugar can attack the pancreas (through oxidative stress and amyloidosis), reducing insulin production until even oral medications are no longer adequate.
