Type One Diabetes

Hello everyone! Today I am moving on to a new topic: type one diabetes.

The Immune System & Type One Diabetes

Type one diabetes is caused by the immune system diminishing the cells in the pancreas, where your body makes insulin. It will cause the body to not have enough insulin to function regularly. This is often referred to has the autoimmune cause, or the autoimmune reaction, because the body is attacking itself. 

Scientists are still wondering about why the body attacks itself in this way. We know that it is not caused by eating too much sugar. Another thing that we know is that we cannot prevent it.

If you were to get type one diabetes you would have to get insulin injections on a daily basis. If your blood sugar levels went low, sugar would be the key to keeping them balanced. Type one diabetes usually starts in childhood.

Thank you for reading! In my up coming posts I will continue on with type one, as well as going into type two and the differences between them. I hope you enjoyed it!

Hi Anastasia! 

Such an interesting and cool topic!

The question I am thinking about is what are the signs of diabetes? I know that some people faint but that could mean anything like your too hot or don’t feel well so if you were to have them, what are some other signs of knowing? 

Good luck in future research!

Hey Anastasia, 

Interesting topic! I was really impressed to see you include the autoimmune cause and autoimmune reaction! Keep up the great work. I think that comparing and contrasting the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes would be an interesting addition to this question!

Hi Ben!

 I am also really enjoying learning about this topic! Diabetes is somethings that I had very little knowledge on, so this has really been very intriguing. I am very excited to share more research and learn more!

Hi Anastasia..

This is a neat research..i understand the diabetes is a chronic disease, that occurs when the body doesn't produce any or enough insulin, leading to an excess of sugar in the blood.For me i thought that is a disease caused by too much sugar in the body and my granny usually shock us because every time she was complaining about the misuse of sugar and she often show us that we will have diabetes by this we could even take sugarless tea but for now i have know that diabetes is not cause by excess sugar in our body but in our blood.I like the way you have outline the type of diabetes.Between the types of diabetes which is more harmful?
