Diabetes mellitus

About Type I DM -  ( Notice that Roman one 'I' looks like English alphabet capital 'I' )
Insulin Dependant Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM)
Insulin antibodies present
Insulitis in Islet cells

It follows that Type II DM is Non Insulin dependant DM.

Also remember I is LESS than II, therefore:
IDDM incidence is LESS ( Only 10% of diagnosed diabetics )
IDDM is seen at an younger age < 30yrs ( age is LESS)
IDDM patients are thin ( LESS body weight )
