this is what a person with Type 1 Diabetes Looks Like, Healthy looking people going about their normal daily life. Living with an autoimmune disease that is Type 1 Diabetes which has no known cause and at the moment has no cure.
Their antibodies have attacked the insulin producing islets in their pancreas, meaning they cannot produce the insulin they need to process their food & drink – their carbohydrate & glucose. Without insulin a person with type 1 diabetes would die.
These people living with type 1 diabetes are either injecting insulin many times a day, every day, or they are wearing an insulin pump to get the insulin they need.
They are also finger pricking many times a day to check their blood reading in order to know just how much insulin they need every time they eat and at any other time.
