Type 1 Diabetes

What Is Type 1 Diabetes?

In Type 1 Diabetes insulin-making cells in our pancreas are destroyed by the immune system. These cells called beta cells. These conditions are usually diagnosed in children and young people, so it was called juvenile diabetes.
Insulin is a type of hormone that helps cells use glucose as energy. Our body gets glucose from the food we eat. Insulin allows glucose to be passed through the blood into your body’s cells.

Causes of Type 1 Diabetes:-

Insulin is a type of hormone that helps to move sugar, or glucose, into your body’s tissues. Our cells use it as fuel.

Damage to beta cells from type 1 diabetes stops the process. Glucose does not enter your cells because insulin is not there to work. Instead, it builds up in your blood and keeps your cells starve. It causes high blood sugar, which can cause:

  • Dehydration.
  • Weight loss.
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).
  • Damage to your body.
