What is type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is when the immune system attacks the insulin producing cells in the pancreas. If insulin can't be produced then the cells get no energy.

Basic life of a diabetic

A diabetic should get plenty of exercise, eat the nutrients they need to stay healthy like fruits, vegetables, and carbohydrates. Also, you should monitor your blood sugar to make sure it is at a normal level. The role of monitoring your blood sugar is to make sure your glucose levels are not high and that you are healthy. Do this daily by pricking your finger and using a diabetic device to test your blood sugar. If you do this daily you will keep track of your blood sugar and stay healthy.
