Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition that causes a person's pancreas, which produces the hormone insulin, to slow down production or cease altogether. Our bodies need insulin to convert sugar from food into energy, when the body's own immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells (called beta cells) of the pancreas. Though the cause of type 1 diabetes remains unknown, there are numerous factors can contribute to the onset of type 1 diabetes, such as genetics factors or certain viruses or infection. Type 1 diabetes normally appears during childhood or adolescence, but it can also begin in adults. A large amount of research has been done on type 1 diabetes, showing that there is no cure. However, type 1 diabetes can be managed. With proper treatment, people suffering from type 1 diabetes can significantly improve their standards of living, particularly when compared to the past, in which case it was not so.
