Did you know T1D:
- Is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin – the hormone that controls blood sugar levels
- Strikes children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle
- Requires constant carb counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin
- Is a constant balancing act that can result in stress and sleepless nights
There is no way to prevent T1D and there is no cure – yet. But JDRF is working hard to change that and for the first time in our history there is a clear path to cures for T1D.
