Diabetes types: Different etiology and similar therapeutic strategies complicate the clinical situation and worsen the outputs management.
Diabetes has been described since ancient times. Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) are the main types of diabetes. The present study reviewed the literature from different perspectives including historical perspectives of diabetes, pathogenesis of diabetes, treatment of diabetes, and the differences between T1DM and T2DM. I have discussed the involvement of neurological aspects in detail in view of the existing literature including my article. I also discussed how T1DM and T2DM have different etiologies and similar treatment patterns. I put emphasis on animal models used in studying diabetes and how these models do not mimic the reality of T1DM, and how information resulting from these studies did not participate in expanding our horizon on the progression of diabetes. Taken together, developing new animal diabetic models that mimic the reality of diabetes types is required to investigate the pathogenesis of diabetes.Author(s): Ahed J Khatib, Fatima Abed Alqader Ali Alaash
