What is Type 1 Diabetes?
Are you or someone you know living with type 1 diabetes? You're not alone. As many as 40 million people worldwide are affected by this chronic condition. While it is less common than the two main types of diabetes, type 1 diabetes can occur at any age. Thanks to advances in technology and treatment options, it is possible to live a full and fulfilling life with type 1 diabetes.
So, what is type 1 diabetes? It is an autoimmune condition where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This leads to a lack of insulin in the body, which is necessary for regulating blood sugar levels. The main symptoms of type 1 diabetes include increased thirst, weight loss, and frequent urination.
