This infographic on the difference between Type I and Type II Diabetes comes to us from the folks at Achieve Clinical. Here’s what they had to say about it:

Odds are that you have heard of Diabetes. You probably even know that there are two different types of Diabetes but can you list the key differences between each type? Here’s a cheat sheet for the major distinctions between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

This infographic is a really nice comparison chart of both types of Diabetes. I have seen a lot of comparison charts that are not done very well, and I like that this one is consistent and easy to read. There isn’t too much text so that data visualization is easy to take in. The infographic could include plenty more data, however. A comparison chart could easily just take up 1/3 or so of the infographic, and the rest of the space could be filled up nicely with other information. It could include a geographical distribution of either type, charts representing the different ages at which people are commonly diagnosed, and what other health conditions are associated with either type of Diabetes.

The icons used in the infographic are nice, but there could be more of them. For instance, there could be icons representing each of the symptoms associated with diabetes. While the use of the snail icon in the AKA section makes sense, it doesn’t really seem appropriate for this infographic. There could also be some icons to represent the Yes/No sections towards the bottom.

Looks good overall, but I’d like to see more information!
