Type 1 Diabetes Basics Center

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the pancreas cannot produce insulin, a hormone essential for moving glucose from the blood into cells. Type 1 diabetes was once called juvenile diabetes because it is usually diagnosed in childhood. People with type 1 diabetes must supply insulin by injection, pump or other methods. Possible treatments include transplant of a pancreas or beta cells.
