What is Type1 Diabetes and how to deal with it?

Over 5 % of world population suffers from Type 1 diabetes. As I had mentioned in my previous article, Blood suagar is caused due to lack of insulin in human body. And when this insulin is not formed at call, it is known as Type1 Diabetes.

Technically speaking, when someone suffers from type1 diabetes, his/her pancreas stop secreting beta cells. These beta cells are responsible to make insulin. Secondary diabetes is similar to type1 diabetes. The only difference is that there our immune system allows the generation of beta cells through pancreas. If pancreas suffers from some disease or injury then only it stops making beta cells.

Why type 1 diabetes is caused – Truly speaking, then there is no specific condition which could state the occurrence of this disease. Scientists in UK, have confirmed that it is nowhere related to Lifestyle and obesity. Some reasons could be due to genetic behaviour. If someone in your family already has this, then chances are more to get affected. It could also be due to autoimmune reaction (this disorder leads to destruction of healthy body tissues by our immune system by mistake). Autoimmune disorder can also be caused by virus, chemicals and typical food that we consume. Even stress can lead to this disorder.  

Age – Age is not any barrier for type1 diabetes. It has been found at the age below 40. People in older age have also been found suffering from type1.
