Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age. In type 1 diabetes, a person's pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin allows the body to process sugar to create energy, without insulin, the body literally starves as it cannot process food.
TYPE 1 DIABETES SYMPTOMS CAN INCLUDE:
• extreme thirst
• constant hunger
• sudden weight loss
• frequent urination
• blurred vision
• extreme tiredness
If you think you or someone you know has these type 1 diabetes symptoms, call a doctor immediately, and drink fluids WITHOUT SUGAR to prevent dehydration.
