TYPE 1 DIABETES
What is Type 1 Diabetes and how is it different from Type 2?
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the body doesn't produce insulin. It's distinct from Type 2, which involves insulin resistance and often develops later in life.
What causes Type 1 Diabetes?
It's caused by the immune system attacking and destroying insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. The exact cause isn't fully understood but involves genetic and environmental factors.
How do I know if I have Type 1 Diabetes?

Currently, there's no cure, but management has advanced significantly. With proper care, people with Type 1 Diabetes can lead healthy lives.

Can I participate in sports and physical activities with Type 1 Diabetes?
