Dr. Naveed Fazlani has helped many sufferers of diabetes mellitus patients over the fifteen years from his Cincinnati-based practice. Those diagnoses, Dr. Naveed Fazlani says, fall into various categories. Because the differing types of diabetes can be perplexing, Dr. Fazlani offers a brief overview.
Type 1 diabetes can have more serious symptoms than type 2, according to Dr. Naveed Fazlani. It’s usually diagnosed in children, teens, and young adults. Type 1 diabetes is present when the body is unable to produce insulin. Insulin shots are necessary for the patient’s survival in this case, so diagnosis is particularly critical.
Dr. Naveed Fazlani generally sees type 2 diabetes in adults. Type 2 diabetes occurs when a patient’s body isn’t producing enough insulin. This is the most common type of diabetes. With type 2 diabetes, diet and lifestyle modifications can help the patient’s symptoms. Also, according to Dr. Naveed Fazlani, diabetes mellitus testing is quick, easy, and can be done in-office.
