Type 1 Diabetes Affects & Management

For most people, when we eat food it’s digested and broken down into glucose. Insulin produced by the pancreas helps move the glucose into our cells which then turns it into energy. However, for Type 1 diabetics, they do not produce enough insulin or any at all, preventing glucose into our cells to turn into energy.

Watch how Type 1 affects the body, the cause of long term diabetes risks and complications, and how you can manage your Type 1 diabetes. You are in control!
