If your wondering why I'm doing this. My little brother has had type 1 diabetes since the age of 2 now finally an adult(18) and it kills me to see all the struggles he has to go through in life in general on top of dealing with type 1 diabetes. I love the kid more then I love myself. If I could change places with him I would in a heartbeat.
What Is Type 1 Diabetes?
There are two major types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes cause blood sugar levels to become higher than normal. However, they cause it in different ways.
Type 1 diabetes (formerly called insulin-dependent diabetes orjuvenile diabetes) results when the pancreas loses its ability to make the hormone insulin. In type 1 diabetes, the person's ownimmune system attacks and destroys the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Once those cells are destroyed, they won't ever make insulin again.
Although no one knows for certain why this happens, scientists think it has something to do with genes. But just getting the genes for diabetes isn't usually enough. A person probably would then have to be exposed to something else — like a virus — to get type 1 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes can't be prevented, and there is no practical way to predict who will get it. There is nothing that either a parent or the child did to cause the disease. Once a person has type 1 diabetes, it does not go away and requires lifelong treatment. Kids and teens with type 1 diabetes depend on daily insulin injections or an insulin pump to control their blood glucose levels.
Type 2 diabetes (formerly called non-insulin-dependent diabetesor adult-onset diabetes) is different from type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes results from the body's inability to respond to insulin normally. Unlike people with type 1 diabetes, most people with type 2 diabetes can still produce insulin, but not enough to meet their body's needs
