Hello, thanks for the question. This particular community is to discuss any questions someone has in relation to Diabetes type 1.  We have a seperate forum for Diabetes type 2 and Diabetes prevention.   Type 1 Diabetes is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas are destroyed, leading to high glucose levels in the blood and resulting in impaired metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.  It's sometimes referred to as insulin dependent diabetes.  We also encourage people diagnosed with diabetes type 1 to discuss anything related to their illness to get information or support.
