Success Stories
Type 1 Diabetes Facts

There is nothing anyone can do to prevent T1D. Presently, there is no known cure.

Who T1D affects

Type 1 diabetes (sometimes known as juvenile diabetes) affects children and adults, though people can be diagnosed at any age.

How T1D is managed

Type 1 diabetes is a 24/7 disease that requires constant management. People with T1D continuously and carefully balance insulin intake with eating, exercise and other activities.

Insulin is not a cure

While insulin therapy keeps people with T1D alive and can help keep blood-glucose levels within recommended range, it is not a cure.
