Type 2 diabetes is often called adult diabetes because it mainly occurs to people above 35-40 and it accounts for more than 90% diabetes cases. It is relative shortage of insulin and therefore it is milder than type 1 diabetes.

From the "Kidney cares" website to which you linked: ~ "The underlying reason of type 2 diabetes is the co-effect of insulin-resistance and inadequate secretion of insulin." 'nuff said!
