Hi! What do you mean caused by antibodies? Type 1 happens when the body's pancreas stops producing insulin completely. That's why we are on insulin injections/pump. Did your 10 yr old have 2 blood sugar fastings and an A1C test to tell whether she is a diabetic? The blood tests too can tell you if their pancreas is producing any insulin or not. In my time, I was diagnosed because it ran on my mom's side. This still holds true. Hereditary, t-1. I hope she doesn't have it. We do and can live normal lives. We just have to take a little better care of ourselves and are better for doing so. I am a t-1 for 49 yrs now. My A1C (tells how one is doing for the past 3 months) is 6.5 Take care.
How can one answer when you need to explain yourself with the antibodies you are talking about? The cause is the pancreas that stops functioning in releasing insulin into our body that breaks down the food we eat.
Yes, I understand about the antibodies you are talking about. There is a higher chance that your daughter will get diabetes. I had this test done to one of my daughters who doesn't have it because my 10 year old has it. She tested negative but you never know. Was this test called a Tigre Test? Hope this helps!!!
