Type 1 Diabetes
immune system attacks and destroys cells of the pancreas
During Type 1 diabetes, metabolic diseases occur whereby a person has high blood sugar levels, and has the inability to produce, metabolize, or respond to insulin.
The main center of Diabetes is the Pancreas. It is located in the back of the abdominal cavity. Its functions are manufacturing, storing, and releasing insulin. The insulin made from the pancreas regulates blood glucose levels.
When glucose levels rise too high or fall too easily, diabetic reactions can occur and the person can become confused or behave irrationally.
If the disease is untreated, the person could become comatose (state of deep conciousness) and die.
