Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is a chronic autoimmune disorder in which the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed by the body’s immune system. Primarily diagnosed in children, teens, and young adults, it can develop at any stage of life.

Symptoms of type 1 can be varied and may include excessive hunger, an unusual increase in thirst, blurred vision, fatigue, frequent urination, and unexplained weight loss.

If you or a loved one are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, it’s important to consult a doctor promptly. Early diagnosis and treatment are key to managing type 1 diabetes effectively and preventing potential complications.
