Diabetes Mellitus Type 1

Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 is a chronic medical condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar (glucose) levels. This type of diabetes is often diagnosed in children and young adults, but it can develop at any age.


In Type 1 Diabetes, the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. This autoimmune response means the pancreas can no longer produce insulin, leading to uncontrolled blood sugar levels.


The exact cause is unknown, but it's believed to involve a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental factors, such as exposure to certain viruses.

Signs and Symptoms

Common symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus Type I include:

Frequent Urination
Excessive Thirst
Extreme Hunger
blurred vision on a green circular frame
Blurred Vision
Weight Loss

If left untreated, it can lead to dangerous levels of blood sugar, causing diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially life-threatening condition.


  • Type 1 Diabetes requires lifelong management, including regular blood sugar monitoring. 
  • Insulin therapy is essential for survival and can be administered through injections. 
  • Diet and exercise are also important to manage blood sugar levels and prevent complications.


Potential long-term complications include cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage, foot damage, skin conditions, and pregnancy complications.

Type 1 Diabetes requires careful and consistent management, and with proper treatment, individuals with Type 1 Diabetes can lead full, active lives.
