What is type 1 diabetes?

  • Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the beta cells in the pancreas are destroyed and therefore can no longer produce insulin. Insulin is needed by the body to transport glucose from the blood into the cells for energy. Reduced or no insulin production causes the glucose levels in the blood to rise dramatically. People who develop type 1 diabetes will usually seek medical advice quickly as they can become seriously ill from the onset of the condition.
  • Type 1 diabetes is NOT caused by lifestyle factors and can not be prevented.
  • Type 1 diabetes accounts for 10 -15% of all cases of diagnosed diabetes.
  • Symptoms are often sudden and can be life threatening. They can include: extreme thirst, frequent urination, sudden unexplained weight loss, extreme fatigue, blurred vision, muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting, constant hunger abdominal pain, and unconsciousness.

What does it mean for someone diagnosed with type 1 diabetes?

If you or someone you care for has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, it is perfectly normal to be experiencing a range of emotions that may be overwhelming.

The good news is diabetes will not prevent you from living a normal life. People with type 1 diabetes have become elite athletes, mountaineers, corporate high-flyers, scientists, and medical professionals. There is no reason for diabetes to stop you from being successful in almost any field.

Trying to balance all the requirements of diabetes management can be a challenge. There is much to learn as you begin to understand how your body responds to different foods, physical activity and insulin. There are many people who can help you understand and manage your diabetes including your diabetes team of health professionals. Your diabetes team may consist of an endocrinologist, diabetes educator, dietitian and psychologist.

Type 1 diabetes can be successfully managed using insulin which replaces the body's own supply of insulin. Insulin can be injected or continuously delivered via an insulin pump.
