Can you spot the people with Type 1 Diabetes in the photograph above?
Answer: A diabetic can be a child, an adult, a teenager, a baby, a cat or a dog, as well as other animals.
Diabetes Type 1 is not just an adult problem, more and more children are being diagnosed with it. Basically, in Type 1 the body doesn't produce enough insulin to move all the sugar out of the bloodstream and it stays in the blood damaging all the organ systems.
Not enough is known to say with any degree of certainty what causes Diabetics. It may be genetics, environmental triggers, ethnicity, climate, intestinal tract viruses, little or no exercise, obesity, whether you were breast fed or not, geography, or a combination of these factors.
