What Is Type 1 Diabetes?
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas are mistakenly destroyed by the body’s immune system. T1D can be diagnosed early in life, but also in adulthood. Its cause is not fully known, and there is no cure. People with T1D are dependent on injected or pumped insulin to survive. Managing the disease is underinsured and results in thousands of dollars in out of pockets expenses annually. Families are often made to choose between treatment and necessities. Left untreated, it can cause severe symptoms, life-threatening complications and death.
