Type 1 Diabetes, previously known as juvenile diabetes, is an autoimmune disease that is usually diagnosed in children and young adults. In this condition, the body does not produce insulin. What causes Type 1 Diabetes? How to treat it effectively?
Causes of Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 Diabetes is characterized by the production of
autoantibodies-antibodies that target the body's own tissues and cells, that
target the insulin-secreting beta cells of the pancreas. Without adequate
insulin, blood sugar levels rise.
This form of diabetes is often found in
association with other autoimmune disorders, especially those endocrine
disorders, particularly those affecting thyroid and adrenal function.
Type 1 Diabetes is responsible for most cases of diabetes in children up to
the age of 12 years. Most people who develop this illness do not have a family
history. However, there is a definite genetic component.
