What is Type 1 Diabetes ? By Dr. Kowshik Gupta, Consultant Pediatrician – Endocrinologist

What is Type 1 diabetes?

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease , in which the person concerned does not produce any or only very little insulin. They must therefore inject it to prevent acute metabolic derailments and long-term consequences.

Type 1 diabetes is often already occurring in childhood and adolescence.
