As far as I can tell, beyond these two types - type 1 & type 2 - there is no agreed upon standard nomenclature. Various web sources have defined "type 3 diabetes" as gestational diabetes, or insulin resistant type 1 diabetes [double diabetes], or type 2 diabetes requiring injectable insulin, or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults [LADA or type 1.5 diabetes].
