  1. Dealing With Type 1 Diabetes Submitted By : University of Chicago Medicine Kovler Diabetes Center

  2. Type 1 diabetes is a chronic auto-immune condition that is characterized by the body's inability to produce the right amount of insulin. It is currently affecting millions of people around the world. This type of diabetes is treatable, but is incurable. It can't be prevented as well. If you have type 1 diabetes, consider reading some diabetes resources for patients and observing appropriate treatment methods. • Type 1 diabetes, also known as a juvenile disease, is one of the most rampant and chronic diseases that currently affect millions of people around the world. Of all the people with diabetes, only around 5% to 10% (mostly young adults and children) is affected.

  3. This auto-immune condition is characterized by the body's inability to produce the right amount of insulin. People with Type 1 diabetes have an immune system that is activated to attack and destroy the endocrine cells in the pancreas known as beta cells that are responsible for the production and secretion of pancreatic hormones like glucagon and insulin. The reason behind the auto-immune reaction is still unknown. However, experts believe that factors like the environment, viruses, and genes play an important role in the development of such autoimmune disorder. Until this time, the researchers and scientists are still working to determine the exact causes of type 1 diabetes and to come up with an absolute cure for it.

  4. This type of diabetes is treatable but is incurable. It can't be prevented as well. If you have type 1 diabetes, consider checking out some diabetes resources from health care instutions and from medical professionals and observing appropriate treatment methods. Dealing with Type 1 Diabetes

  5. Physical activities like regular exercise are critical for your overall wellness. It can also be beneficial in the management of type 1 diabetes. Regular exercise can help you get rid of long-term complications including blocked arteries and help improve the insulin sensitivity of your body, thus making it easier to control, maintain, and/or manage blood glucose levels. If you are still not diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, consider maintaining or trying the diabetes prevention exercise to lower your risk, especially if such auto-immune conditions runs in your blood. 2. Physical activities and exercise

  6. 3. Diabetic nutrition plan • Everything that you put in your mouth affects your body and health. That is why you should always watch over the food you eat, most especially if you have type 1 diabetes. It is also important that you know and understand how the different types of foods can affect your blood glucose levels.

  7. If you are not sure which nutrition plan will work best for you, try seeking help and guidance from your doctor or from a licensed specialist at Chicago medical training center.

  8. 4. Insulin Replacement Therapy • Since your body can't be able to produce enough insulin, you have to get it using an artificial method or treatment, such as insulin replacement therapy. This therapy is done by injecting the insulin into the cells through injections or via an insulin pump. Apart from these two primary methods, researchers are still conducting various clinical trials to find other potential delivery methods, two of which are through nasal spray and patch.

  9. 5. Regular monitoring • Patients with type 1 need to have their blood sugar levels closely and regularly monitored. High levels of sugar in the blood can lead to serious complications including blindness and blocked arteries, which can lead to heart attack. • Do not wait for the symptoms to show up before you check your blood sugar levels. Even if you are feeling good, your blood sugar may be at high level. One best way to monitor your blood sugar level is through a device called glucometer. With just a small drop of your blood, you can be able to determine the glucose levels in your blood.
