TYPE 1 DIABETES
Type 1 diabetes, which affects around 10% of diabetics, is an autoimmune disorder that destroys insulin-producing cells. As a result, glucose levels in the blood rise, leading to a number of health complications.
While no one knows why Type 1 diabetes manifests, lifestyle changes will not necessarily reduce your risk for the condition. If you have begun exhibiting what you suspect are diabetes symptoms, book an appointment with Dr. Yasmeen Ajaz, Specialist Endocrinologist & Internal Medicine and Dr. Donatella Casiglia, Specialist Diabetes and Endocrinology, MD, CCT.
