The common types of functional NETs include carcinoid, insulinoma, gastrinoma, glucagonoma, VIPoma, and somatostatinoma. Non-functional NETs are commonly slow growing and may only come to clinical detection when they are widely metastatic due to their slow onset of symptom.
These include insulinoma, gastrinoma, VIPoma, somatostatinoma, and glucagonoma.
Unlike other pNET, such as gastrinoma or somatostatinoma, insulinomas are usually benign, so it is possible to speculate that this peculiar behavior could be attributed to particular oncogenic events.

There are also other types of diabetes which are considered as secondary to other conditions, for example, any damage to pancreas such as removal of pancreatic tissue, trauma, pancreatic carcinoma, and infection, or underlying diseases including endocrine diseases that alter different hormones secretion which are antagonist to insulin resulting in various clinical manifestations such as acromegaly, Cushing's syndrome, pheochromocytoma, glucagonoma, somatostatinoma, and diabetes.
