I think you are right, I made the critical mistake of forgetting about the insulin resistant faced by NIDDM. This would lead to increased serum insulin levels over time.

So it should be E)

E) 2 - 3 - 1
since there is no insulin in DM1 which is represented by line 3, we rule out all other choices that doesn have curve 3 as DM1. so its either C or E, so I guess in DM2 there is no effect of insulin therefore it jus keep rising so my ans is E

i think its E. coz in type 1 theres less insluin produced, and in type 2 there is insulin resistance which would mean that the normal body physiology would go on increasing the insulin levels to counter that...so i think E fits in best. whats the answer bebix? great questions though!

Default correct answer

the correct answer is E)

In response to increased blood levels of glucose, plasma insulin concentration normally increases during the 60-min period following oral intake of glucose. In type 1DM insulin secretion is depressed. In contrast, in type 2 DM, insulin resistance is a common finding and, at least in the early stages of the disease, there is an abnormally high rate of insulin secretion.
