Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is one of the lesser known diabetes because it is seen in only 10% of the population of diabetics. There are various kinds of diabetes that can affect a person. Some of the common kinds include those like gestational diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and steroid induced diabetes. There are many diabetic complications too that can affect a person.

Though the type 1 diabetes is not a common one, it is one of the kinds of diabetes that needs daily and continuous treatment. There are many people who are not affected because the damage to the pancreas usually occurs congenitally. When a person is born, the pancreas is damaged and this can lead to the glucose levels in the body not being regulated properly.

When the glucose levels are not regulated, their levels are elevated and this could lead to various side effects in the person. The type 1 diabetes symptoms are very similar to the type 2 diabetes symptoms, but the main difference is that young people are commonly affected by this disease. This does not mean that older people are not affected. Any person who has had removal of the pancreas due to disease will also suffer from this kind of diabetes. The Diabetes risk factors need to be identified early and adequate treatment taken.

In type 1 diabetes, there is either little or no production of the insulin. This makes it very important that the insulin is injected into the body for it to take over the function of the insulin produced by the body. The insulin is injected into the body and this starts functioning similarly to the normal functions and starts maintaining the glucose level in the body.

There are several other names by which this kind of type 1 diabetes is known. The other names for this disease include the juvenile diabetes, early onset diabetes, juvenile onset diabetes and also insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, commonly known as IDDM or the type 1 diabetes mellitus.
