Type 1 Diabetes, generally found in young adults and children, was earlier known as juvenile diabetes. When people have Type 1 Diabetes, insulin is not produced in the blood stream. Their immune system starts attacking the pancreas. The exact cause behind this phenomenon is yet to be identified by medical experts. Insulin injections are administered to those who suffer from this condition. Factors such as general physical and mental health, regularity of physical exercise and food consumption determine the amount of insulin required by each Type 1 Diabetes patient. Unfortunately, there is no permanent solution for those who suffer from Type 1 Diabetes.
