[IP] Re: Type 1 and Type 2

>Insulin-deficient means insulinopenic, so far as *I* can

Truly insulinopenic = no insulin. Insulin deficient means
there isn't enough insulin or enough effective insulin to do
the work it is supposed to do. Insulin resistance is usually
related to a cellular defect that impairs the use of
available insulin (from whatever cause).

Are we at war again?
