    What is Type 1 Diabetes?

    Type 1 diabetes or sometimes called "juvenile diabetes" is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. Type 1 diabetes is also  a more severe form of diabetes that usually develops and affects children and adults alike.

    According to statistics, in the United States of America alone, more than 1 million Americans including about 200,000 youth bellow 20 years old are type 1 diabetics. Every year, more than 40 thousand Americans are diagnosed to be type 1 diabetic.

    The exact cause of type 1 diabetes is unknown. Most likely it is an autoimmune disorder. This is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. The tendency to develop autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes, can be passed down through families.

    Type 1 diabetes warning signs can occur suddenly. These includes:

    • Extreme thirst
    • Frequent urination
    • Drowsiness or lethargy
    • Increased appetite
    • Sudden weight loss
    • Sudden vision changes
    • Sugar in the urine
    • Fruity odor on the breath
    • Heavy or labored breathing
    • Stupor or unconsciousness

    People who are diagnosed to be type 1 diabetics needs insulin injections to bring the needed glucose to the body cells. The challenge with this treatment is that it’s often not possible to know precisely how much insulin to take. The amount is based on many factors, including:

    • Food
    • Exercise
    • Stress
    • Emotions
    • General Health

    These factors changes every day. That is why, deciding on what dose of insulin to take is a complicated balancing act.  Too much insulin intake will burn too much glucose that can lead to a condition called hypoglycemia or drop in blood sugar to a very dangerously low level. Also, if too little insulin is injected to the body, it will also lead to a condition called hyperglycemia or the rise of the blood sugar also to a dangerously high level. Both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia can increase the chance of  long term complications.
