In brief: 1 and 2

Type 1 is usually referred to as juvenile diabetes.
It results from the pancreas not producing enough insulin. Type 2 diabetes results from our body developing Insulin resistance, preventing the body from using the Insulin and sugar it naturally has. Insulin resistance usually develops as a result of being overweight. It can develop in both adults and children.

Type 1 diabetes is generally referred to as juvenile diabetes as it occurs most in younger ages.
Type 2 diabetes is referred to as adult onset, although with the alarming rates of obesity in children, we are seeing more children diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
