Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, where the body mistakenly destroys cells in the pancreas (betacells) that produce insulin. This is more typically diagnosed in persons under the age of 20, but can occur at any age. Persons with type 1 diabetes need to go on insulin at the time of diagnosis.
