Type 1 Diabetes

Definition

Diabetes is a problem where glucose (sugar) levels in the blood are higher than normal. In type 1 diabetes, the body cannot make the hormone insulin, which means that glucose cannot enter the cells to release the energy the body needs. Type 1 diabetes is the most common form in children and young adults, and requires treatment with replacement insulin. See also Type 2 Diabetes.
