Diabetes Type 1

Diabetes type 1 is a chronic metabolic disorder that results from complete lack of endogenous insulin. What causes lack of endogenous insulin is the auto-digestion of the beta-cells of the pancreas.

Once developed, diabetes type 1 requires lifelong treatment with exogenous insulin, together with lifestyle modifications.
