The mechanisms that underlie Type 2 diabetes are complex and far less illustrated compared to Type 1 diabetes which has been acknowledged as an autoimmune disease. It has been hypothesized that autoimmunity, autophagy, or/and dedifferentiation of islet β cells and other factors could be involved in the development of Type 2 diabetes, in which autoimmunity may also play a critical role.
