Diabetes is normally split into two categories: Type 1 and Type 2. But a group of scientists from Sweden and Finland say diabetes is actually five separate diseases. Each of the five proposed categories is genetically distinct. Their characteristics vary by the patient’s age, weight, resistance to insulin, the amount of insulin they produce and whether their diabetes is caused by an autoimmune disorder. The new distinct categories could allow doctors to better treat patients who are more at risk for certain complications and lead to more tailored treatments for the disease. .
