1) Type 1 Diabetes
The body does not produce insulin. Some people may refer to this type as insulin-dependent
diabetes, juvenile diabetes, or early-onset diabetes. People usually develop type 1 diabetes
before their 40th year, often in early adulthood or teenage years.
Type 1 diabetes is nowhere near as common as type 2 diabetes. Approximately 10% of all
diabetes cases are type 1.
Patients with type 1 diabetes will need to take insulin injections for the rest of their life. They
must also ensure proper blood-glucose levels by carrying out regular blood tests and following a
special diet.
Between 2001 and 2009, the prevalence of type 1 diabetes among the under 20s in the USA rose
23%, according to SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth data issued by the CDC (Centers for Disease
