All you need to know about Type 1 Diabetes

Did you know Nick Jonas had Diabetes type 1 since the age of 13? Let us check out the causes, symptoms, and treatment for Diabetes type 1.

Suffering from diabetes with aging is at a high pace these days. Most people may get diabetes post 50 years of age due to hormonal imbalance. One thing which is true about diabetes is that it can be controlled and managed but cannot be cured. So, along with medications, it is important to make certain lifestyle changes in case of diabetes. 

There are two types of Diabetes- 

  • Diabetes Type 1 

Type 1 diabetes mainly is considered an autoimmune disorder that occurs in adolescents or young adults. It is an autoimmune disorder that destroys the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. This causes the inability of the body to produce insulin. 

Type 1 diabetes is irreversible and has an unknown cause of auto-immunity.

  • Diabetes Type 2 

Type 2 diabetes may occur later in life and the body produces insulin but cannot use it effectively. 

Both types of diabetes are chronic diseases and may affect the way in which the body regulates sugar levels. 

People with type 1 diabetes do not produce insulin while people with type 2 diabetes produce insulin but are unable to respond to it. 

Insulin plays a major role in the absorption of glucose and sugar levels in the bloodstream.
