Help Find a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes (juvenile diabetes) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person's pancreas makes little to no insulin. Because the cause of the disease is still unknown, after more than 100 years, we still treat the symptoms of diabetes, rather than the disease itself. Scientists believe that a person's own immune system, directed by genetic and environmental factors, plays a major role in the development of the disease. Before we can develop new treatments and a cure for diabetes, laboratory research is needed to understand the mechanics and triggers of type 1 diabetes.
