This is an autoimmune condition that occurs when the immune system damages the pancreas that produces insulin, and the damage caused to the pancreas results in a lack of insulin. Type 1 diabetes can be caused by genes or problems with cells in the pancreas.
This type of diabetes happens when the body becomes resistant to insulin and sugar builds up in the body.
This happens in pregnant women and is caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy. In the body of a pregnant woman, the placenta produces hormones that make the body cells less sensitive to the effects of insulin.
