Until recently the diagnostic criteria and division into two main types of diabetes seemed clear enough. It was thought that just as islet autoantibodies and tendency to ketosis was a feature of type 1 diabetes, insulin resistance and slow progress of the disease was typical of type 2 diabetes. However, the latest study results and case reports supply evidence which questions this present order. Is there a 1.5 type diabetes The growing diagnostic abilities in the field of genetics and immunology offer new measures to broaden studies of diabetes pathogenesis and pathophysiology. Formerly described characteristics of types of diabetes become blurred and tend to permeate one another. All those data contribute to a great need to verify the old and establish the new diagnostic criteria for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. There is an increasing view that one should assume that type 1 and type 2 diabetes and non-autoimmune syndromes occur in both adults and children.
