About Type 1 Diabetes


People with type 1 diabetes are very dependent on insulin because the immune system of the patient will attack and destroy the pancreatic cells that produce insulin. This triggers an increase in glucose levels resulting in damage to the organs of the body. Until now, the cause behind type 1 diabetes is not known for certain.


People with this type of diabetes generally aged under 40 years, usually appear in adolescence or children. Therefore, type 1 diabetes is also referred to as juvenile diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes is less common than type 2 diabetes. Among 10 people with diabetes, it is estimated that only 1 person has type 1.


In addition to receiving daily insulin injections, type 1 diabetics are also advised to keep blood glucose levels in balance. For example by applying a healthy diet and undergoing blood tests regularly.
