Type 1 Diabetes |

Type 1 diabetes is affecting only 5 to 10% of people, affirms Lois Exelbert, Nurse Diabetes Educator and Patient Care Manager with Baptist Hospital of Miami. She adds the old name for this condition used to be juvenile diabetes, because it was presumed that it happened in children and not in adults. However, adults even the age of 40 and 50 can develop the disease.
Type 1 diabetes usually occurs at an early age. The symptoms occur abruptly.
The Nurse explains the only way to treat this condition is with insulin specifically by injection. She also says diabetes is a genetic disease. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
